After 21 years as an Alderman at the Burnie City Council, John Munro decided it was time to step down.

Mayor Alvwyn Boyd thanked John for his contribution at the October Council meeting last night, John’s last duty as an Alderman.

“John leaves us after 21 years as an Alderman and five of those years as our City’s Deputy Mayor. John is a very good friend of mine and we have worked closely together on many projects.

“He was present on Council during those difficult years when the pulp dispute was on and contributed to a whole range of Council viewpoints over a long period of time.”

John during his time as an Alderman has been very active within the Burnie community. John was awarded Life Membership of the Burnie Dockers Football Club and was active in the Learn to Swim campaigns. He was also awarded Life Membership of the Burnie Life Saving Club due to his involvement with the club.

He also has a deep passion for community groups, in particular the Burnie Concert Band, where he has been a patron for many years. He is very active in following his faith and an active member of the Catholic Parish here in Burnie.

“His community involvement has been extensive and he placed his heart and soul into Council matters over the last 21 years.

“He has been a loyal servant to the City and a great support for me over many years,” Mayor Boyd said.
