Important Changes to Customer Service - Coronavirus Updates
A number of measures will be in place to ensure safety and compliance at Customer Service Centres in Colac and Apollo Bay with Victorian Government COVID restrictions:
- Cashless payments are preferred
- There will be a limit to the number of customers in the Customer Service Centre (maximum of one person per four square metres) at a time
- A physical distance of 1.5 metres between people must be maintained at all times
- Hand sanitising stations will be in place for customer use
While Customer Service Centres will be open, Council encourages the Colac Otway community to utilise online information and payment services via the Council website to limit the number of trips away from home.
Further information can be found at Council's Coronavirus - Information for the Community.
Contact Customer Service directly using our online form.
Please complete the Submit a Request form to report an issue, or provide feedback to Council. Your request will be directed to the appropriate business unit for action.
