The Council’s use of sustainable asphalt as a recycled material is a finalist in both the Excellence in Environment and Sustainability category, and the Excellence in Innovation category.

Brockman Community Centre is up for the Best Metropolitan Public Works Project between $2 and $5 million, and the Swan Active Beechboro Family Changing Room is up for Best Metropolitan Public Works Project Under $2 million.

Council CEO, Stephen Cain said he was proud of the City’s achievements.
