Eighty nine employees have clocked up a total of 1,490 years of combined service for the City of Canterbury Bankstown.
Mayor Khal Asfour said this impressive tally consisted of 46 staff with 10 years’ service, 28 with 20 years, 13 with 30 years and two with an impressive 40 years.
"Our Council is only as good as its people and our staff are dedicated and committed to making CBCity an even better place to live in, work in, visit and enjoy," Mayor Asfour said.
"They live our mission of providing quality services to our community every day."
Two of Council’s longest serving employees are Ronald Tanner and Nicolas Loizou, who have achieved the 40-year milestone.
Mr Tanner, who first started with the former Bankstown City Council in November 1977, began in waste services as a garbage collector, where he continues to work today.
"To me, it’s the best job in the world. I’m on the missed bins service, so I collect those that haven’t been picked up because it’s either behind a car or there’s some sort of obstruction," he said.
"I love my job because of the people I get to work with. The community is really appreciative of the service and I get beat traffic when I’m on my way to work at 2-3am."
Mr Tanner said he’s honoured to work for CBCity and has no plans of retiring in the immediate future.
"This Council puts a lot of time and effort into its employees and that’s an organisation you want to work for," he said.
"There are chances to up-skill, become a leader, learn a new role, and it’s a great culture to be a part of."
The second 40-year long–service recipient, Mr Loizou, began working with the former Canterbury City Council as a casual gardener in 1978, became permanent in 1979 and has been based in Gough Whitlam Park ever since.
