Fifteen Gannawarra Shire Council initiatives are in the running to be recognised during the 2022 National Awards for Local Government.
Voting is now open for the publicly-decided awards, which are an annual celebration of local government achievements across Australia.
“It is an honour for Council to again be recognised in the National Awards for Local Government, with initiatives such as our creative arts program, ReSpark the Park initiative and NDIS services either winning categories, receiving high commendations or shortlisted as finalists in previous years,” Council Chief Executive Officer, Tom O’Reilly said.
Council-led initiatives that are in the running for the 2022 awards include:
“These nominations are testament to the work our dedicated team undertake to make the Gannawarra a great place to live and work,” Mr O’Reilly said.
“The public vote process also promotes Council’s work nationally against the 537 local councils across Australia, which in turn puts the Gannawarra on the national map.”
Voting can be completed online by visiting https://nalg.awardsplatform.com/, registering an account and selecting which project should win an award in each of the 11 categories.
“With award winners to be announced in October, there is limited time to help the Gannawarra receive recognition nationally,” Mr O’Reilly said.
