Nom­i­na­tions for new coun­cil

The Free Press (Corowa) - - NEWS - BY ROBERT MUIR

Nom­i­na­tions for the much an­tic­i­pated in­au­gu­ral elec­tion of coun­cil­lors for Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil will open on Mon­day, July 31 and will close on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 9.

Elec­tions will be held on Satur­day, Septem­ber 9. The re­sult is ex­pected to be known on Sun­day, Septem­ber 17 and an­nounced on Mon­day, Septem­ber 18.

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil’s monthly Septem­ber meet­ing is likely to be changed from the usual third Tues­day of the month to the last Tues­day, Septem­ber 26.

This would en­sure all elected coun­cil­lors will be able to have suf­fi­cient no­tice and to at­tend the history-mak­ing coun­cil meet­ing, and will en­sure coun­cil ful­fils its elec­tion obli­ga­tions.

Coun­cil meets tomorrow (Thurs­day, June 29) to con­firm these ar­range­ments. At the first meet­ing of the new coun­cil, a mayor will be voted on by the nine elected coun­cil­lors.

Elec­tion ad­ver­tis­ing will com­mence from early July in con­junc­tion with the NSW Elec­toral Com­mis­sion and state-wide ad­ver­tis­ing.
