It is with great sadness that I inform you of the tragic death of former SEATS Chair and long term Councillor and Mayor of Casey Shire Council, Mr Mick Morland.

Mick was unfortunately struck by a motor vehicle whilst out walking. Mick was a wonderful family man and a terrific contributor to his community in so many ways, including
25 years service to Local Government, Rotary, mentoring and coaching Little Athletics and junior football and supporting his beloved AFL “Tigers”. He was highly respected
and achieved many significant projects for the community he loved. His enthusiasm and leadership of SEATS in its early days provided the solid foundation for the future and
he always remained a good friend and staunch supporter of the work done by SEATS. A few years ago at our meeting hosted by the Baw Baw Shire Council he was able to
proudly attend our 21st birthday celebration, cut the cake and talk about the importance of the work of SEATS.

Mick will certainly be missed by all who knew him.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.
John Duscher
SEATS Executive Officer
