Moreland City Council's first Mayor, Mike Hill, passed away on Tuesday.

Mike was Moreland’s first Mayor in 1996, twenty years ago this year.

He and his colleagues on the first Council came with a long term vision of what local government could achieve through cooperation and advocacy with other tiers of government. 

He was a mentor and friend to many and a passionate conservationist, Moreland remembers Mike Hill.




Microchipping your dog or cat is a great way to make sure your pet can be easily identified.

Vets, animal shelters and local Councils can scan the microchip and then contact you to let you know the location of your pet.

It's important you keep your details current. This means if your animal is lost, Council can identify your pet and return it to you easily.
