Mayor Cr Leigh Dunscombe

Nominate top local Aussies


Nominations are now open for Australia Day Awards. Murrindindi Shire Council is encouraging community members to recognise those who have made a significant contribution.

Mayor Leigh Dunscombe said it is hoped to see community groups, schools, social clubs and service organisations getting behind the Awards to ensure those worthy of recognition are acknowledged.

“Australia Day Awards are a great way to recognise those people who go the extra mile helping others and making our Shire such a wonderful place to live,” Cr Dunscombe said.

“Nominations are currently open for ‘Murrindindi Shire Citizen of the Year’, ‘Murrindindi Shire Young Citizen of the Year’ and ‘Murrindindi Shire Senior Citizen of the Year’.

“You can find more information about the awards, selection criteria and nomination forms at www.murrindindi.vic.gov.au/australiaday

“Or, you can pick up an application form from any Council office. Don’t leave it too long though because nominations do close on Friday, January 3.

“I really encourage everyone to take a moment to ponder the people in their lives who make a special contribution or who have achieved something outstanding, and take this opportunity to pay tribute to their efforts,” Cr Dunscombe said.
