Mayor and Councillors
Council is made up of the Mayor and ten Councillors who are elected by the community every four years to represent the views of residents within the region.
Under the Local Government Act 2009, it is the role of Councillors to determine strategic objectives and adopt a policies framework in order to lead Council into the future.
Our elected representatives are decisive, display strong leadership, promote the positive attributes and opportunities of the Fraser Coast, foster positive relationships and form cohesive partnerships with all tiers of government to benefit the community.
Division boundaries have changed and will be in effect from March 2020. More information on boundary changes is available on the ECQ website.
