Government link wins award
THE Linking Councils & Communities Program, managed by the Western Australian Local Government Association, has won the Infrastructure and Telecommunications award categories at the WA Information Technology and Telecommunications Awards.
The Linking Councils and Communities Program provides councils, particularly in rural, regional and remote WA, access to infrastructure tools, expertise and education to develop a shared online services environment to enhance and extend the delivery of local government services to the community through the Internet.
The LCC program allows online suppliers to operate in an environment where distance is often a barrier to communication and business opportunities.
Paterson receives citation
JOONDALUP chairman of commissioners John Paterson is the recipient of the Outstanding Citizens Award, an award presented each year by the Claremont branch of the Liberal Party.
It recognises those people who, by their own effort, have created what the branch calls a benchmark to which other people may aspire to achieve.
Previous citation recipients are Elizabeth Jolley, Santina Stransky, Joan Pope and Ruth Reid.
Claremont president David Stephens said: "John has proven to be a huge motivator in whichever area he operates and this has certainly been obvious in the enormous amount of work he has done in developing the Dalkeith Nedlands Bowling Club in our own area".
