Campbelltown City Council has made a big splash at the 2017 Local Government Excellence Awards.
It took out top honours in three award categories, the most by any participating council.
Campbelltown Council was named number one in the following award categories:
Excellence in asset management and infrastructure initiatives – for the implementation of microsurfacing treatment, part of council’s pavement management strategy.
Excellence in creative communities – for Campbelltown Arts Centre’s With Secrecy and Despatch exhibition.
Excellence in environmental leadership and sustainability (population over 100,000) – for council’s schools for sustainability program.
But that’s wasn’t the end of an excellent result for Campbelltown in the 2017 awards.
Council’s annual free recyclables drop-off day was also recognised as a finalist in the Excellence in environmental leadership and sustainability (population over 100,000) award category.
Another local initiative, council’s Companion Animal Rehoming project, was a finalist in the Special Project Initiative category.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, congratulated staff on their success, saying the awards demonstrated council’s dedication to providing a high standard of service to the local community.
“Recognition of these projects also highlights the scope of services council provides to our community, and our commitment to being leaders in our industry – whether it’s through looking for new ways to improve our roads, confronting painful subjects through art, or inspiring our young people to develop practical ways to care for our environment,” he said.
The awards are hosted by Local Government Professionals Australia, NSW.
They recognise and showcase excellence in the local government sector.
This year’s LG Awards Dinner attracted more than 300 people when it was held last week at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney.
