Commendable effort

15 Oct 2013

Two Southbank businesses will receive Lord Mayor Commendations next month, celebrating their longevity in Southbank.

American Rag and AquaJ will both receive a bronze commendation for small businesses operating for 10 years of more within the City of Melbourne.

Other awards being presented are Silver Commendation (for 25 plus years of operation in the City of Melbourne), Gold commendation (for 40 plus years), Platinum Commendation (for 50 plus years) and a special Generation Family Business Commendation (for any business that has run within the City of Melbourne over at least three generations).

Since the program began in 2005, 330 small businesses have received commendations, while another 12 have received generational awards.

This year’s recipients will receive their commendations at a presentation evening on October 21.
