Federal Minister for Local Government Simon Crean yesterday (19 April 2012) announced the category winners of the 2012 National Awards for Local Government.
The 27 category winners were judged by independent judging panels and include 11 winners from small councils with fewer than 15,000 rateable properties.
Below is a list of some of the Councils who received awards and commendations for projects that are of relevance to Indigenous Australian health and wellbeing. (For a complete list of winners across all Awards categories, see links below.)
Engaging and Strengthening Indigenous Communities
Improving Services to Remote Communities
Innovative Infrastructure Development
Rural and Remote Health
Strength in Diversity
Women in Local Government
The category winners announced yesterday will now be considered for the overall 2012 National Award for Excellence in Local Government.
In coming weeks an independent panel will again assess the category winners and determine which will receive a 2012 Award for Excellence.
The recipients of the 2012 National Award for Excellence in Local Government will be announced at a special presentation in late June.
