Scenic Rim Regional is reopening its Customer Service and Administration Centres on Monday 25th May, in line with the Queensland Government’s roadmap to easing COVID-19 restrictions.
In preparation for their reopening, sneeze guards and floor decals to indicate safe distancing have been installed at Council’s Customer Service and Administration Centres at Boonah, Beaudesert and Tamborine Mountain and there will be limits to the number of customers permitted in each service centre at one time.
Scenic Rim Mayor Greg Christensen said Council had continued to provide essential services to the community as the COVID-19 situation has evolved and that the safety of the community and Council employees remained a priority as Council has begun reopening many of its facilities.
“To keep everyone safe during COVID-19, and in line with the Queensland Government’s social distancing guidelines, there will be maximum number of five customers permitted in our Beaudesert Administration Centre at one time, two at Boonah Customer Service Centre and one at Tamborine Mountain Customer Service Centre,” he said.
“Before visiting our Customer Service and Administration Centres, please consider whether your enquiry can be managed over the phone.
Council’s libraries reopened with a ‘click and collect’ service.
Canungra Librarians, Rosemary and Jan, said they have been inundated by people taking up the ‘click and collect’ service.
“It has been great to have so many people use this service,” said Rosemary, “They have obviously missed having the library open.”
Library books can be ordered over the phone or via Council’s web site, people then phone the library to arrange a pick up time. The books are left in the room next to the library in bags, making the process contactless.
