THE Central Highlands Council was confirmed last week with mayor Lou Triffitt entering a new term in the top job.
The nine Central Highlands councillors were finalised this week from the 10 candidates.
Councillors Jim Allwright, Tony Bailey, Robert Cassidy, Julie Honner and Jim Poore retained their seat on council alongside Cr Triffitt, while new faces elected were Anthony Archer, Scott Bowden, and Anita Campbell.
Keith Allcock was the only candidate to miss out.
Cr Triffitt who was first elected in 2005 said she was extremely humbled.
“It’s very satisfying and I’m very pleased with the support I have from the local community,” she said.
“I’m quite enthusiastic about getting on with the job. There are heaps of projects in mind I want to develop and I want to continue to listen to the community and work closely with the other elected councillors.”
Jim Allwright was elected deputy mayor.
