Long-serving members of Maroondah City Council staff will be honoured at a special celebratory reception at the Karralyka Centre, Mines Road, Ringwood on Wednesday 30 June.

Mayor of Maroondah Councillor Alex Makin said the Staff Milestones evening celebrates the dedicated service of 58 Council employees over 10 and 20 years.

Thirty-five staff have achieved 10 years of service, 22 achieved 20 years and one staff member has achieved 30 years of service.

“Service milestones are something that should be recognised and celebrated and at Maroondah we are proud to have staff who have served their community over a long period of time,” said Cr Makin.

“One of the strengths of any organisation is having continuity of staff – those who ‘know the ropes’ and have a sense of history and overview to draw on,” said Cr Makin.

The large number of service areas represented in the Service Milestones included Executive Support, Parks and Works, Neighbourhood Services, Children’s Services, Financial Services, Karralyka, Public Health and Major Leisure Facilities.

Staff members will be congratulated by Maroondah’s CEO, Frank Dixon and Mayor of Maroondah, Councillor Alex Makin who will present letters under seal from Council.
