"It's been a privilege," councillor Marlene Nash said after receiving a Certificate of Service at the recent Local Government NSW conference.
In a mayoral minute to last week's Cabonne meeting mayor Kevin Beatty noted Cr Nash has been council's delegate on various committees and represented council at forums such as the Australian Local Government Women's Conference, LGNSW Water Management Conference and LGNSW Tourism Conference.
"Marlene is an active member within the Manildra and broader Cabonne community, with a focus on delivery of high-quality amenities, infrastructure and health services to support community wellbeing.
"The place would be a lot duller without you here, well done and we look forward to seeing you here for many more years," Cr Beatty said.
"I've enjoyed every minute of it," Cr Nash told her fellow councillors.
"Thank you for acknowledging me and Local Government for acknowledging me... definitely an honour."
