After more than 20 years in the Civic Centre, the Flinders Electorate Office has moved.
Member for Flinders Peter Treloar opened the doors to his new office in the newly-restored old Court House last week, corner of Adelaide Place and Washington Street.
“What a privilege it is to work out of one of few Heritage Listed buildings in Port Lincoln,” Mr Treloar said.
The outside has been diligently restored, thanks to stonemasons Bob and Robert Hanchant, who returned the original 1862 Duck Pond stonework to its former glory.
“I am grateful to the owners for generously funding the building’s restoration, and am honoured to be only the third tenant in its long history,” Mr Treloar said.
“I anticipate the prominent location of the building will make it more accessible, visible and convenient for the public to visit.”
The office will continue to offer all of the services it currently does, including the important drop-in Justice of the Peace Service.
“We ask everyone to be patient with us during this time, while we’re in the office, we’re still waiting on many bits and pieces – including our phone service, to be completed,” Mr Treloar said.
The office can still be contacted via email/website/Facebook.
Anyone with State-based issues are encouraged to visit the new Flinders Electorate Office, corner of Adelaide Place and Washington Street, Port Lincoln.
