Forty-seven community members and organisations have been nominated across nine categories for council’s annual awards. 

“It’s fantastic to see these exceptional people and groups being recognised,” Mayor Rod Marti said.“

We have such a great community and that doesn’t happen without the contribution of people like those who have been nominated. 

“The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Australia Day and we’ll also be welcoming eight new citizens. 

“Unfortunately it will be an invite-only event but we’ll be live streaming it so no-one misses out.”
