Surrey council named Ron Meadley this year’s Good Citizen of the Year on Tuesday night at the city’s annual volunteer services celebration.

The event was established by the City of Surrey and honours committee volunteers for their hard work throughout the year.

“Ron Meadley has passionately advocated for the conservation and enhancement of Surrey’s natural areas for many years," said Mayor Dianne Watts. "His tireless work for the protection of the environment will have a lasting impact in our city."

Some of Meadley's legacies include:

• Vice-President, Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club;

• Vice-President, Little Campbell Watershed Society;

• President, Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society;

• Chair, Sunnyside Acres Advisory Committee since 2008;

• Sunnyside Acres Friend of the Forest since 2005.

"Known for his collaborative approach to the issues, Ron has set a wonderful example of leadership for our community," Watts said. “Because of efforts like Ron’s, we continue to benefit from many talented people who contribute their time and energy to help build a stronger Surrey.”

The Good Citizen award recipient is chosen by council and is presented to a City of Surrey resident who has provided outstanding services for the betterment of the community.
