Congratulations to Roper Gulf Regional Council’s Barunga team, which picked up a 4 Gold Star Accreditation at the 2016 Territory Tidy Town Awards at a gala function in Darwin on October 21.
Councillor Anne Marie Lee, Director of Council and Community Services Sharon Hillen, and Barunga/Manyallaluk Council Services Co-ordinator Ben Ulamari represented the organisation at the event, as well as at an Australia Day conference and Territory Tidy Towns forum preceding the award ceremony.
“The conference gave us lots of great ideas about developing Australia Day events and celebrations for our towns in 2017,” Mrs Hillen said.
“We also learnt a lot about waste management innovation at the forum.”
The 4 Gold Star Accreditation is for Barunga’s consistency in maintaining its service standard from year to year, and Mrs Hillen praised staff for their ongoing efforts.
“This award proves Barunga is the benchmark for how towns in the Roper Gulf region can be presented,” she said.
“I’m very proud of what the team in Barunga has been able to achieve.”
