THE lease has been signed. Lyne MP David Gillespie will open a second office in Taree.
The office fitout is in the design and construction stage for 144 Victoria Street but is tipped to open its doors to the community within the month.
Office hours are yet to be determined but it is expected to be staffed three days per week.
Mr Gillespie currently works from an electorate office in Port Macquarie. It is funded by the federal government.
According to a spokesman for Mr Gillespie, the Lyne electorate is too small to warrant two federally funded electorate offices. Mr Gillespie will finance the operating costs of the Taree office.
