Thursday, 30 January, 2020 - 09:00
The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) is reviewing the electoral structure of Mansfield Shire Council to ensure it provides fair and equitable representation for all voters.
Following preliminary submissions from the local community and the VEC’s own research, the VEC has produced a preliminary report with three proposed options for the electoral structure of Mansfield Shire Council.
Mansfield Shire Council currently has five Councillors elected from four wards (one two-Councillor ward and three single-Councillor wards).
The report presents three proposed options:
Option A - five councillors elected from four wards with adjustments to the current ward boundaries (one two-councillor ward and three single-councillor wards).
Option B - five councillors elected from an unsubdivided electoral structure.
Option C - seven councillors elected from an unsubdivided electoral structure.
