GUNNEDAH COMMUNITY WINS WITH SERVICE NSW
Gunnedah’s new Service NSW Centre will be fast-tracked following calls from Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson to have the centre opened before the end of the year.
Mr Anderson said community support had assisted him in lobbying the Minister for Finance, Services and Property Victor Dominello to see the project delivered ahead of others around the state.
“Our community deserve the very best services from the NSW Government which is why I fought hard to see the rollout of Service NSW Gunnedah happens this year.
“The Service NSW Centre will allow residents of Gunnedah to work with government departments in a way they never could before.
“No longer will we just have an old motor registry, but a comprehensive service that can handle around 1000 transactions on your behalf.”
Mr Anderson said included in those transactions will be the ability for local people to obtain a general Opal card and top-up the balance of all Opal cards before travelling to Sydney, a service that he fought to have delivered in Tamworth earlier this year.
“This fantastic service gives piece of mind to people who need to travel on public transport in Sydney who will be able to make arrangements for their Opal card using a face-to-face service locally.
“Our local Service NSW teams are considered to be amongst the best in the state and I thank them for the passion they have for quality customer service. They are changing the way people interact with Government services.
“Building a better region means identifying what services we can offer locally and taking action to get results.”
Service NSW Gunnedah will open on Friday 10 November 2017.
Mr Anderson is urging the community to complete transactions before it closes for renovations from 4pm on Friday 20 October 2017. While the motor registry is closed for three weeks, transactions can be completed online at www.service.nsw.gov.au, download the app or phone 13 77 88.
