Over the next few weeks if you get a call from an unknown number you might want to think twice before ignoring it.

Geraldton residents will be randomly called by Thinkfield, a West Australian research company, and offered to be a part of a 30 person citizens’ jury that will shape the policies of council services.

The City of Greater Geraldton council will give information to the panel on a range of city services available including the costs involved.

Geraldton mayor Shane Van Styn said the priority of the council is always to provide good value for money while ensuring services actually reflect what the community wants and needs.

“We look forward to hearing what the panel will recommend to council on behalf of the community they will be representing,” he said.
