Highlights of the Year 2014-15

The Highlights of the Year are divided into the four pillars of the Council Plan: People, Place, Economy, and Stewardship.



  • Council adopted its Reconciliation Action Plan during the year, which was endorsed by Reconciliation Victoria.
  • A Youth Ambassadors program was successfully established; comprising 18 young people aged 12-25 from Paynesville through to Omeo and Orbost.
  • Three videos were created in a collaborative project with VicHealth – Arts About Us. The Everyday Interventions films focussed on people who may feel excluded from wider society, and were showcased at the launch of the Disability, Access and Social Inclusion Plan.



  • A number of projects have re-energised Paynesville’s central business district, including an upgrade of Gilsenan Reserve and significant streetscaping works along The Esplanade.
  • Energy efficiency upgrades at the Lakes Entrance Aquadome have saved $15,000 on gas usage each month for the first three months since the pool blankets were installed.
  • Council undertook a $2 million road reseal program, which included extensive preparation works such as road rehabilitation and kerb and channel replacement work.
  • Council’s Parks and Gardens staff supported major community celebrations by installing flower displays in Bairnsdale’s Main Street Gardens. These included NAIDOC Week and the Centenary of the Red Cross.


  • The East Gippsland Food Map was launched to support local business and promotes access to fresh local produce.


  • The Mallacoota Service Centre was opened, which provides a dedicated facility for our communities in the Far East to conduct Council business. The building also houses a library and reception for the Mallacoota Foreshore Holiday Park. The majority of the fit out works were completed by Council’s carpentry staff.
  • Council made five submissions for Black Spot funding, an Australian Government program to eliminate safety problems on the roads, and had all projects approved.
  • All customer forms, totalling 137, were re-written in Plain English and 113 forms were converted to accessible HTML on Council’s website.
