Bluett Memorial Trust chairman John Flannery said the council area was one of the most disadvantaged in NSW and the council had made significant progress in connecting with its community, creating an economic vision for the city, and supporting the many community groups that make up this culturally- and socially-diverse area. Seventeen councils competed for the award this year. Keep it in mind A NATIONAL epilepsy conference will be held at the Sydney Convention Centre Darling Harbour on Saturday, November 8.

In addition, Council offers an "On Call" service for the collection of metals, batteries, fire extinguishers, gas bottles and household appliances. To book contact Council's Customer Service Centre on 9748 9999. Recycle Right Mr Jack Lees celebrated his 100th birthday in Strathfield joined by Mayor Kwon who presented him with flowers and a congratulatory letter. Strathfield Council is one of thirty-four Sydney, Central Coast and Hunter-area councils that have raised strong objections to a proposed a 67 per cent increase in street lighting pricing by EnergyAustralia. Of particular concern to councils is the pricing of newer greenhouse-friendly lighting, where in the case of the most common type of energy efficient lighting for residential roads, EnergyAustralia's price this year is 84 per cent higher than that of Integral Energy (the electricity distributor in Western Sydney and the Illawarra). Additionally Council is lobbying the State Government to consider an urgent pricing and regulatory review of street lighting.
