Temporary site for customer service

Due to refurbishment works at the council offices, the council’s Customer Service centre will be relocated to 194B High St, next to the post office, from Monday, December 3, 2018.

The Hovell St offices will be closed to the public and all customer service inquiries including payments should be directed to the High St location.

A new lift will be installed as part of the refurbishment of the ground floor of Wodonga Council’s Hovell St offices.

The refurbishment will see the customer focus area updated to be more accessible and safer for staff and visitors.​

Part of the new entryway will include a lift that will go from the car park level to the second floor where North East Catchment Management Authority is located.

The lift will meet accessibility standards for the community to access the public areas of the building including customer service and the new public toilets and Council Chamber.

A second lift will replace the existing internal lift within the existing structure. It is more than 30 years old.

The lifts will take about 20 weeks to manufacture plus another eight weeks to install.

The refurbishment works have a completion date of mid-2019.
