Council Administrator Mike Colreavy says Mr Sowiak was playing an instrumental role in leading the council’s flood preparations and supporting the SES and shire communities.

“Jeff will be greatly missed, especially for his personal warmth and his passion for local government and our community. Jeff was a friend to all in every community where he has served.” Mr Colreavy said.
