Moree Plains Shire Council is delighted that one of our own Councillors has been recognised for his hard work, dedication and continued service to the community of the Moree Plains Shire. Cr John Tramby was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List, being awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in recognition of his continued service to Local Government and to the community of the Moree Plains.
Cr Tramby has been an elected Councillor of the Moree Plains Shire for over 20 years, first being elected in 1995 and serving as Mayor from 2004-2007. During this time Cr Tramby has been instrumental in bringing a number of projects to fruition including, more recently the Moree Bypass and the Moree Anzac Centenary Memorial.
Aside from Cr Tramby’s work with local government he has also been recognised for his many years of continued service to the community. Cr Tramby has given much of his time to improving life on the black soil plains with his involvement in many community and volunteer organisations within the Shire including more than 50 years’ volunteer service to the Gurley Bush Fire Brigade.
