Bega Valley Shire Council is calling for expressions of interest from people with an interest in history and the future direction of the Shire’s cemeteries to join the newly formed Cemetery Advisory Committee.

The EOI is aimed at community members who have a keen interest in cemetery management, local history, land care, or would like to have an input at the strategic level on the future management of the Bega Valley Shire’s cemeteries.

Council’s Manager of Community and Culture, Simon Schweitzer, says he encourages community members to contribute to the future of our cemeteries through their involvement on the committee.

“Cemeteries are significant places and their long term care and management is extremely important to our community and Council.

“We look forward to working with community members who will help us shape the future of the cemeteries in the Shire,” Mr Schweitzer said.

Responsibilities of the Cemetery Advisory Committee will include:

  • Considering, discussing and advising on specific issues related to the management and future direction of Council’s cemeteries.
  • Liaising with Council on a range of cemetery issues with a focus on strategic level management including the setting of fees and charges at Council cemeteries.
  • May at times be called upon to provide advice and recommendations on Council policies, procedures and processes that impact on cemetery management.
  • Comments may be sought on major projects being undertaken in Council cemeteries.

The committee will meet four times a year, with the term finishing in June 2021.

EOI’s close at 4pm on Friday 14 April 2017. Forms and guidelines can be found on Council’s website.
