We have had a busy week at Council with the formal declaration of the newly elected Council as well as a number of our roads re-opening and closing again this week due to flooding. Council would like to thank the community for their understanding as road conditions can change quite quickly.
Our SMS Notification Service is working well with keeping residents up to date with the road closures. To be included on the database, contact Council’s Communications Officer Amy Millerd on 6850 2361 or email email@example.com. Council updates it’s website and Facebook page, with all the latest road conditions. The first meeting of the newly elected Council will be held at 1pm September 29. The Mayor and Deputy Mayor will also be elected at this meeting. The newly elected Councillors are Phyllis Miller, Grant Clifton, Steven Karaitiana, Susan Chau, Graeme Miller, Jenny Webb, Michele Herbert, Chris Roylance and Jeff Nicholson. On behalf of Council I would like to congratulate all candidates.
I would also like to formally thank the 2012-2016 Councillors, who were not re-elected this term, Brian Mattiske, Dennis Booth and Michael ‘Duke’ Jelbart for their contribution to Council over the past four years.
