Cr Les McPhee elected as Mayor

Councillor Les McPhee has been elected as Mayor of Swan Hill Rural City Council.

At their Statutory Council Meeting held this afternoon, Councillors elected Councillor McPhee Mayor for the next 12 months.

It will be his sixth term as Mayor, having served in the role during 2018, 2017, 2016, 2014 and 2013.

Councillors have also elected Cr Stuart King as Deputy Mayor.

“It is a real privilege to be the Mayor – I look forward to serving our community, once again,” Cr McPhee said.

“I want to thank Councillors for their support and I look forward to working with them and staff over the next year to continue the good work of this Council,” he said.

“In next 12 months I look forward to seeing new projects on the horizon and more dollars come into our municipality.

“I intend to work closely alongside staff and the community, as we navigate the recovery process following current and ongoing impacts of our high river and flooding events.

“Of course, Council will also continue working to improve efficiencies to ensure our community continues to receive high quality services,” Cr McPhee said.

Also at today’s meeting, Councillors determined the 2023 meeting schedule, which will again see Ordinary Meetings held mostly on the third Tuesday of each month.
