THE Upper Kiewa Valley Community Association has reappointed its executive and committee at its annual general meeting held last Thursday night.
The UKVCA advocates for the communities of the Upper Kiewa Valley, providing a line of communication between residents and the Alpine Shire and other government bodies.
Chairperson Jodee Betheras thanked all members of the committee for their hard work and dedication over the past year.
“We have spent several years learning how processes and procedures work in various levels of government, as well as government organi- Nil <2cm 1575m sations such as VicRoads, DWELP and NECMA, and providing Upper Kiewa representation where possible,” she said.
“This year we have decided to minimise the number of new projects as the ones we are now working on are not only long-term but time-consuming.”
The UKVCA is currently working on the West Kiewa Open Space project, the Pebble Beach walking track extension and the push to build toilet facilities in Tawonga South.
The association sends representatives to every Alpine Shire Council meeting, to Community Health and Advisory Group (CHAG) Conditions: meetings and submits nominations for the Australia Day Awards.
Kirsten McDonald of the Alpine Shire chaired the extremely brief election procedures.
The results were Jodee Betheras (chair), Mary Pike (secretary) John Gibbons (treasurer), Trish Cross (communications officer) and Kerry Prike, Rod Hyde, Kitty Vigo, Jim Crebbin, Alex Craig and Sue Ryder (committee members).
Ms Betheras urged the community to log onto the association’s website at ukvcommunity.org.au for further information, and to contact the group for help dealing with community issues. 1695m showers are expected, clearing on Sunday
