About Council

Meet our Mayor and Councillors

Mitchell Shire Council is represented by 9 Councillors. Each of the shire’s three wards — North, Central and South — are represented by three Councillors.

A Mayor and Deputy Mayor are elected by Councillors each year, usually at the end of November.

Councillors take part in the decision making of the Council, represent the local community in that decision making and contribute to the strategic direction of the Council through the development and review of key strategic documents.

To do this they must:

  • consider the interests and needs of the local community
  • observe principles of good governance and act with integrity
  • provide civic leadership
  • serve as representatives to Committees and organisations (see list of appointments below)
  • participate in the responsible allocation of the resources of Council through the annual budget, and
  • facilitate effective communication between the Council and the community.
