Federation Council Mayor, Cr Pat Bourke said Council was pleased to present the Annual Report to the community which details the many achievements and challenges experienced across Federation Council over the last 12-month period.

“2021/22 has been another significant year for Federation Council as we continued to provide the many valued services and programs along with delivering many fantastic projects, supporting our many and diverse communities and visitors to this great region,” he said.

” This year especially saw Council as an employer along with its community in many ways, move from the depths of Covid management across 2020 and the early stages of 2021, into more of a ‘living with Covid’ approach. We are proud of the way Council through its fantastic committed staff, our fabulous volunteers of which there are so many, along with our valued contractors and many other partners, were able to lead the way and support each other across the many and varied challenges. We have learnt or been reminded, as an organisation, and I think as a community, that crisis creates opportunities. There were so many examples of this both within Council, and right across the community, in individuals and clubs, as well as businesses, who all adapted and innovated in service delivery to not only survive but thrive in some cases.”

Mayor Bourke said he encourages residents to engage with the Annual Report and provide any feedback to ensure Council can continue to improve on its reporting and engagement on Council’s services and initiatives.
