Council’s Chief Executive Officer Mr David Leahy said it was important that all residents in the shire took the opportunity to have their say in this local government election.
“This is an opportunity for all voters to decide who will represent them on Council,” he said.
“We are looking forward to announcing our new councillors for the next four years in the near future.”
Voting is compulsory for voters who are on the state roll for this general and Council-enrolled voters are encouraged to vote. State-enrolled voters who don’t vote may be fined.
