Responsible Department - Governance
Civic Honours Policy (48kb)
Local Government is the closest tier of government to the community. The support and contribution made by community members and service of Councillors, enriches the municipality and enhances the community for all residents.
This Policy specifies how, and under what circumstances, civic honours will be awarded to an individual, group or organisation.
This Policy applies to the individuals and organisations who the Council may wish to honour through presentation of Keys to the City or non-continuing Councillors who have served a full term of Council. Traditionally keys to the City are presented to esteemed visitors or residents who are honoured for service to the community.
