Com­modore, deputy mayor, chief ex­ec­u­tive and long-term res­i­dent John Lally can now add an­other feather to his cap, hav­ing been named the City of Kar­ratha’s ci­ti­zen of the year at yes­ter­day’s Aus­tralia Day Awards cer­e­mony.

Mr Lally was one of six in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions com­mended for their ef­forts in mak­ing their homes a bet­ter place to live.

In Ex­mouth, SES stal­wart Rus­sel Le­vien re­ceived top hon­ours for his work in emer­gency ser­vices and con­tri­bu­tion to sports clubs and the Ex­mouth pipe band.

Mr Le­vien was com­mended for his role in help­ing Ex- mouth through some of its most dif­fi­cult times.

Shire of Ex­mouth pres­i­dent Turk Shales said the cho­sen in­di­vid­u­als were wor­thy re­cip­i­ents.

“It is a plea­sure to be able to recog­nise and thank those peo­ple who in­vest so much of their time and ef­fort to en­sure that we con­tinue to en­joy the Ex­mouth qual­ity of life,” he said.

Shire of Ash­bur­ton pres­i­dent Kerry White said it was good to see peo­ple com­ing to­gether to spend the day with mates around the bar­be­cue.

Stephanie Viljoen, Beth­wyn Boatwright, Anna McCabe and Amanda Mey­ers were given the nod for the ac­tive ci­ti­zen award in their re­spec­tive towns in Ash­bur­ton.
