Role of Councillors

Councillors are democratically elected representatives of the community responsible for making decisions about Council directions and budget spending. Maribyrnong City Council is divided into 3 multi-councillor areas known as wards. Councillors have a close link with their wards and you can contact any councillor if you have concerns about your local area or about Council issues generally.

Role of the Mayor

The Mayor is elected by their fellow councillors for a term of up to 2 years (normally a councillor will be elected for a term of 1 year). The Mayor has an important role as a community leader and is the main spokesperson for Council. The Mayor also chairs council meetings, and encourages all councillors to participate in decision making.

Contacting Councillors

Maribyrnong City Council supports our community making contact with Councillors to discuss civic matters. However, Council takes a firm stance of no tolerance towards any abusive or defamatory communication with Councillors. If a member of the public communicates with Councillors in an inappropriate way, Council will make contact with the relevant authorities.
