Meet Charlie

Charlie is Council's innovative approach to engage, educate and help the community, and will be travelling around the region to villages, events and more.
The truck is a unique opportunity for Council to utilise a space outside of the Civic Centre and proactively educate, inform, engage and meet face-to-face with residents.

Charlie stands for:
Council
Help
Advice
Resources
Learning
Information
Education

Keep your eyes peeled for him (you can't miss his bright yellow exterior!) and pop in for a visit and to find out how Charlie can help you.

While you're there you can:

  • Get an update on Council projects
  • Ask a question
  • Provide feedback
  • Lodge a request
  • Access Council’s online services

If you have an idea for how Charlie can be utilised let us know! Put it on the People's Panel forum or email communityengagement@wagga.nsw.gov.au

Charlie's transformation

A former Riverina Regional Library truck, Charlie has been transformed inside and out and now has a customer counter, dedicated work/desk spaces, air conditioning, whiteboard, smart television and even a kitchen sink.One of the unique features of Charlie is a 19-foot expandable pod, meaning there's plenty of space inside.Watch the video below to see Charlie's transformation.
