ECHO Community Services’ new home at 1 Brand Place in Morley will be renamed after its late co-founder Max Tulley.
Bayswater Council unanimously supported naming the building the Max Tulley Centre at last night’s council meeting.
Mr Tulley was known for establishing the Justice of the Peace services at Galleria Shopping Centre, being awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia and winning the 1992 Australia Day Citizen of the Year award.
The City of Bayswater previously had the Max Tulley Office and Information Centre at Galleria Shopping Centre which closed in 2017, with services being relocated to the civic centre.
Councillor Barry McKenna said he knew Mr Tulley, who was one of the “great people” in the community.
“I think it is appropriate that we continue to recognise Max and his legacy so younger generations can see that there were people in the city who built a great city,” he said.
“His contribution was incredibly well received by the council of the day and I fully support this.
“Good on you Max, I know you are there looking down on us.”
