As part of the Shire's commitment to supporting the local business community the Shire has signed the Small Business Friendly Local Governments' Charter.
This initiative, developed by the Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC), formally recognises local governments working towards, ‘better practice’ in engaging with their small business community. The Shire is committed to small businesses by:
- Working to further enhance customer service
- Payments within 30 days
- Having a process in place to handle disputes
- Investigating and being open to introducing other activities to assist in improving the operating environment for small businesses in Narrogin
- Continuing to work closely with the Narrogin Chamber of Commerce
The Shire of Narrogin is proud to be ‘small business friendly’ and is one of eight Local Governments in Western Australia embracing this program currently. The Shire of Narrogin along with the Shire of Chittering are the only regional Local Governments in WA participating in this process.
