Alpine Shire Council 2010-2011 Annual Report released

STATE recognition for outstanding achievement in emergency management, three new events for the tourism calendar and the development of the Alpine@Home Community Care alliance with Alpine Health are among Alpine Shire Council’s achievements for the year, as noted in the recent 2010/11 Annual Report.

The Alpine Shire Council 2010/11 Annual Report was adopted at a Special Council meeting on Tuesday, 25 October.

Mayor Nino Mautone applauded the efforts of Council staff and the community as a whole for rallying together after flooding in September and November 2010 sparked a widespread recovery effort.

“It’s at times like these that the community can stand together, and this year has been another great example of our residents working towards a common goal,” he said.

“We are a resilient community and this year, like so many in the past, has been a testing time, but we have come through it.”

Council was awarded a Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) award for Outstanding Achievement in Emergency Management for its MECC Central emergency coordination and response system.

Three new events have been added to the annual Alpine Shire Tourism events Calendar, and one event added to the Dinner Plain calendar.

Council also received an ECO-Buy Regional Council Award for green purchasing in recognition of its work in choosing environmentally sustainable options.

Aspirations for the coming year include the resolution of the Bright Early Years Centre project, a greater recognition of arts and culture and developing a new planning scheme that “truly works towards achieving the vision for the Alpine Shire.

The report is available for viewing online here or in hard copy at Council’s offices, Churchill Avenue, Bright, or Customer Service Centres at Mount Beauty and Myrtleford Libraries.
