Mayor, Cr Licia Kokocinski & Deputy Mayor, Cr John Cottrell
I intended to use the office of Mayor to focus on embedding contemporary governance practices for the Council and overseeing the development and implementation of a Planning Scheme for the Shire that attempts to balance the many competing interests that are clearly evident in a peri-urban area of Victoria. It is absolutely imperative that we manage growth, but protecting our beautiful environment, and at the same time as ameliorating the impacts of climate change.
These are the top priorities for this Shire. Our CEO, Mr Evan King and his team are completely behind the Council’s priorities, and we will need to continue to maintain top class financial stewardship for the whole Shire.
Mayor, Cr Kokocinski
