City to hold a spe­cial elec­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch - Lisa Thomas

THE City of Su­bi­aco will hold an ex­tra­or­di­nary elec­tion in De­cem­ber be­cause of the City of Perth Act.

Coun­cil­lors voted 9-3 in favour of the elec­tion, which will fill the south ward va­cancy.

The City is also seek­ing feed­back on a ward review that will con­sider the num­ber of coun­cil­lors needed.

City of Su­bi­aco chief ex­ec­u­tive Don Bur­nett said the ex­tra­or­di­nary elec­tion was a re­quire­ment of the WA Elec­toral Com­mis­sion.

“Re­cent changes to coun­cil were a re­sult of the City of Perth Act 2016, with one south ward coun­cil­lor in­el­i­gi­ble to sit on coun­cil un­der the Lo­cal Govern­ment Act 1995,” he said.

The coun­cil will hold an ex­tra­or­di­nary elec­tion on De­cem­ber 9.
