There’s more than mining happening in the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
Mayor John Bowler hasn’t been a part of the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Council long, but he has been involved in some notable changes for the community.
“What we've done in the last four years, is really spend a lot of money in to the arts, so that people who may not be sporting minded, have something to look forward to,” he explains.
The City is a major regional centre with over 30,000 people choosing to call it home. Although mining is a major industry in the city, Cr Bowler explains that there is plenty on offer for those who are looking to find somewhere new to live and work.
“We have career prospects for people and their children.”
Council plays a large part in the community, not only by providing public facilities and infrastructure, but also by supporting local initiatives and groups. Cr Bowler explains more, and urges you to see his city for yourself;
“There's hardly a thing that happens in Kalgoorlie-Boulder that the city Council isn't involved in. We sponsor a huge array of community groups, events, happenings… It's a fantastic community, it’s unique. Come here and you'll find out.”
