Mayor's Message July 22 2014

I am compiling a short history of the Sheffield Town Hall for the centenary on 20th August.  If you have any memories, stories or photos to share please contact me or Aleasha Goss at the Council.

Congratulations to our Cradle Coast Tourism Awards winners: Tasmazia and Village of Lower Crackpot, Steamfest, Discovery Holiday Parks Cradle Mountain, Hellyers Restaurant, at Cradle Mountain Wilderness Village, Peter Martin and Igor van Gerwen.

The office of the Governor of Tasmania has sent all Councils notepaper for members of the public to write condolence messages for the late Peter Underwood AC.  These will be bound in one memorial book.  If you wish to sign or write a message please come to the Council office to do so.

If you wish to vote at the upcoming Local Government elections you need to be registered on either the Electoral Roll or on the General Manager’s Roll.  The General Manager’s Roll may include anyone who owns land in Kentish but does not live here, corporate bodies with land in Kentish and other Kentish residents not on the electoral roll, eg non-Australian citizens.  A corporate body such as a business which owns or occupies land in Kentish is entitled to nominate one person to vote on its behalf at an election.  For some this means they get two votes!  To get on the General Managers Roll you need to fill in the nomination form and lodge it with Council before close of the rolls in September.  Council can assist with forms and information.
