A little bit of rain overhead wasn't enough to stop Griffith residents from having their voices heard.
About 20 residents attended this Thursday's Council Café session at the Banna Avenue kiosk and provided feedback on what they felt Griffith City Council could do to improve the town.
Some suggestions included: more kid-friendly events, building a community for younger people, improving Lake Wyangan, more affordable housing and more shops in the main street.

Council's director of economic and organisational development Shireen Donaldson was very thankful to community members who took the time out of their day to make suggestions.
She said the next Council Café session would be held on Thursday, April 15, but in the meantime there would be plenty of other ways to make suggestions.
"Council will also have a stand at the Riverina Field Days on Friday, May 14 and Saturday, May 15," Mrs Donaldson said.
'Walt Walls' have also been set up at the library, the art gallery, the visitors information centre and the foyer of council's administration building where suggestions can be made.
"This is an easy way to contribute," Mrs Donaldson said.
"Simply write down what you think should be a priority for Griffith's future on the post it note provided and stick it to the 'wall'."
"Council will also be launching Art and Photo competitions in the coming weeks to get locals young and old thinking about Griffith."
