Election of Acting Mayor and Deputy Mayor

Mayor Lachlan Clyne’s resignation is effective from today – 31 January 2018.

At last Monday’s Council Meeting, Cr Peter Hughes (Fullarton Ward) was elected to be Acting Mayor from tomorrow until November 2018 when the next Local Government general election will be held.

Our Deputy Mayor is appointed on an annual basis and Cr Michael Hewitson (Unley Ward) was elected to this position for the ensuing 12 months.

One of our long standing members, Cr John Koumi (Parkside Wared) also announced his resignation from Council with effect from today due to competing personal demands on his time.

Although we will have two Elected Members less for the next 10 months, it will be ‘business as usual’ with several major items on our agenda, e.g. Unley Oval redevelopment, Goodwood Oval redevelopment, initial consultation on the upgrade of King William Road, as well as ongoing issues of footpaths, trees, etc.
