15 Apr 2014

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle opened applications for the 2014 Lord Mayor Commendations last month, recognising small businesses based in the City of Melbourne for their contribution to the city.

Businesses that have operated in the city for 10 years or longer are eligible to apply for commendations.

Southbank’s own Chocoholic Tours, run by Suzie Wharton, is a Bronze Commendation recipient and two of her staff, Jess Gilchrist and Taelyn Bonnici were on hand to help the Lord Mayor launch the program.

“Small businesses are an integral part of the city’s economic and cultural fabric: there are 12,600 small businesses operating in the municipality. Together they employ 75,000 people,” Cr Doyle explained.

“Over the past nine years the program has offered small businesses support and networking opportunities while also cultivating positive synergies between small business and the City of Melbourne,” he added. 

Applications close on June 13. To apply or for more information head to melbourne.vic.gov.au/commendations or call 9658 9658.
