Kyogle Council is 'capable of great things’, says GM
KYOGLE Council has been named a finalist in the NSW Local Government Excellence Awards.
The council was nominated in the Excellence in Asset Management category for its Bridging the Gaps, the Road to Financial Sustainability program.
It was one of just four finalists in the category which was ultimately taken out by Lake Macquarie City Council for its Lake Macquarie Holiday Parks Capital Works Program.
The awards were announced in Sydney on Thursday night.
Kyogle Council's general manager David Tuxford said simply qualifying as a finalist in the awards was "a great achievement".
"Our Council was entered in a very tough category against some very tough opposition," he said.
"I am extremely proud of the hard work staff have put into the project.
"Being one of just four finalists selected from throughout the state is an incredible honour in itself and shows that Kyogle Council is capable of great things."
The NSW Local Government Excellence Awards are run annually by Local Government Professionals Australia, NSW.
