Meet our Mayor and Councillors

Liverpool Plains Shire Council is a statutory corporation established under the Local Government Act 1993.

The Councillors, meeting as the Council, are the governing body of the corporation and are responsible for directing and controlling the affairs of Council in accordance with the Act.

Our governing body comprises seven Councillors. Councillors are elected by eligible residents and ratepayers within the community.

All Councillors are elected to represent the entire Liverpool Plains Shire local government area, rather than individual wards.

Councillors make decisions on all key matters at Council meetings, which are open to the public. Members of the public can also apply to address Council meetings.

The Mayor and Deputy Mayor are chosen by the Councillors and elected for a two-year term. The current Mayor is Cr Doug Hawkins OAM and the current Deputy Mayor is Cr Ken Cudmore.
