Mr Riordan stated the topics will range, depending upon what locals are more interested in.

"The main topics are what Colac and Otway communities want to be the main topics. But I'm guessing people will want to talk about roads, energy, employment, the environment, in particularly the waste management problem at the moment and of course, the old problem of country rates for local government which is a problem that continues to aggravate people every year.

"Some of the feedback I've had from people in the lead up, they're pretty close to those topics. I've had people also wanting to talk to Michael O'Brien about greater prospects for Lake Colac and the proposed pipeline. So while there'll be people with complaints and grievances and issues they want improved, there's also going to be a positive agenda with people with new ideas on how our region could be even better."
