Exmouth Council elections scheduled for October 2017

Posted on: Thursday, 1 June 2017 at 1:53:53 PM

The Shire of Exmouth will work with the Western Australian Local Government Association to provide education and training to support candidates contesting local elections in October this year.

The comment follows this week’s resignation of suspended councillors and the proposal by Local Government Minister David Templeman to extend the appointment of Commissioner Ian Fletcher beyond 4 July, until elections are held.

The Shire is committed to providing good governance to the Exmouth community and a key to this is ensuring that elected members are aware of their role and responsibilities.

Commissioner Ian Fletcher encouraged members of the community to consider nominating for the six vacancies at the upcoming election.

“Exmouth has a very bright future and this is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in making a substantive contribution to the local community to get involved,” he said.

Nominations for the October elections will open in early September.
