Council to teller all at bank closures inquiry

Latrobe City Council is continuing to advocate on behalf of its community in the midst of ongoing regional bank closures across the region.

Mayor, Kellie O’Callaghan says Council has seen first-hand the impact of regional bank closures following closures across Morwell over a number of years, along with Westpac Moe and now ANZ Moe expected in April.

“Banking facilities have been available across Latrobe City for our community to access for many years, recent service changes have seen our community impacted,” said the Mayor.

“Council is ensuring that government are aware of the impact to local businesses and our community if bank closures continue. We look forward to working alongside them and banks to ensure that our communities remain empowered as we navigate this change and look for solutions.”

As part of local advocacy efforts, Council CEO, Steven Piasente, will attend the Senate Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee Inquiry into Bank Closures in Regional Australia today in Sale.
