First meeting of the new-look council

THE first meeting of the Derwent Valley Council in its new form will be held tomorrow, Thursday, November 20 at 6.30pm. The public is invited to attend the meeting, which will be held in the courthouse in Circle St, New Norfolk.  Please join us - and if you would like any assistance or information about the meeting, please do get in touch. The meeting agenda is available online.

The members of the incoming eight-member council have already been declared elected but the first order of business at tomorrow night's meeting will be the official swearing-in. According to the agenda documents, it will be done in the following order:  Cr Martyn Evans (Mayor), Cr Ben Shaw (Deputy Mayor), Cr Barry Lathey, myself, Cr James Graham, Cr Julie Triffett, Cr Paul Belcher and Cr Frank Pearce.

Before the outgoing council is consigned to history, I would like to acknowledge the service of those councillors who were not returned to office:
  • Cr Judy Bromfield OAM (served from 1991-96 and 1998-2014)
  • Cr Tony Nicholson (served from 1998-2009 and 2011-14)
  • Cr Wayne Shoobridge (served from 2001-02 and 2011-14)
  • Cr Scott Shaw (served from 2005-14)
  • Cr Chris Lester (served from 2011-14)
