Lieutenant Kenneth Bonamy Price (13 October 1921 – 22 January 2008).[1] was a local Councillor in the Town of Walkerville in Adelaide, South Australia for over 20 years.[2]

Price was born in October 1921 to Archibald Grenfell Price (28 January 1892 – July 1977[3][4]) and Kitty Pauline Price (nee Hayward; 8 January 1893 – 27 February 1984[5]). Scales attended St. Mark's College in Adelaide[6]. In July 1950, Price was admitted to the South Australian Bar[7].

In July 1975, Price was elected to the Town of Walkerville Council, representing the Medindie ward[8]. He was re-elected in the Medindie Ward in every election until he was elected Mayor of Walkerville in May 1977. He took office in July 1977, succeeding Edwin (Ned) Scales, who then took over the Medindie Ward which Price vacated to take office.[9]

During Price's tenure, The eastern side of the council's area, especially the new side of Vale Park was mostly developed and the rate of change and development which had escalated in the 1950s and 1960s decreased. Many young couples started raising families in the area around this time. Price was elected as mayor again in 1978, 1979, 1980 and 1981[10]. Price was re-elected as the Councillor for the Medindie Ward after his resignation as mayor beginning 1982. The Walkerville council switched from annual to bi-annual elections in 1982 (although in 1987 the pattern was altered again). Price was re-elected in 1984, 1986, 1987 and 1989[11]. He retired mid-term in May 1990, triggering a special council election[12]
