City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Public Holiday Consultation

City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Public Holiday Consultation
The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is undertaking a Public Impact Assessment (PIA) to determine community interest for a local public holiday on Friday 15 June 2018.
The proposed holiday would coincide with events linked to the 125th anniversary of the discovery of gold in Kalgoorlie-Boulder (14 June 2018) and will support a long weekend of community celebrations surrounding the milestone.

In accordance with the Public and Bank Holidays Act 1972 (the Act), Local Government Authorities (LGA’s) may apply for a substitution of the Queen’s Birthday public holiday in Western Australia for another date of local significance.

The City is consulting broadly around the proposal and invites parties who are interested in expressing their views to complete the below questions:

  • What other factors should the City consider as part of the consultation process
