2020 Council Election Administration

Our decision about who will be appointed to run the Council elections in September 2020 has been postponed following advice from the NSW Office of Local Government (OLG) that the Independent Regulatory and Pricing Tribunal  (IPART) will be conducting a review into the cost of running NSW local government elections.

Your next opportunity to elect Councillors will be in September 2020.

Eighteen months prior to the election, Council usually decides who will run the upcoming election - this will be either the NSW Electoral Commission or the General Manager. Due to the advice from the OLG, we have decided to postpone this decision. If you would like to know more, see the advice received from the OLG in their Circular to Councils 19-02.
