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
