Nominations for the 2016 Local Government Awards for Excellence are now closed. Thank you to all councils that submitted nominations.
The annual Local Government Awards for Excellence aim to promote outstanding achievement and to inspire leading management practice and continuous improvement among Tasmanian councils. The awards are presented for initiatives that have, or are delivering positive benefits for our communities.
The 2016 Local Government Awards for Excellence will recognise council initiatives that have demonstrated outstanding performance and achievement in the implementation of council initiatives under the following categories:
Delivering Excellence - Smaller Councils (populations up to 15,000)
- Delivering Excellence - Larger Councils (populations more than 15,000)
Initiatives may be linked to social and community services, infrastructure services, environmental services, or operational aspects of Council. Projects might include community collaborations, education and cultural change projects, risk management and climate change initiatives, sustainable developments, best practice infrastructure projects, or the protection or improved management of built heritage.
Award winners and finalists will be announced at the LGAT Annual Conference, at the C3 Convention Centre in Hobart from 11.15am - 11.45am, on Friday, 22 July 2016. The winners will each receive a trophy and $1,000 prize money for staff development activities.
