The information contained on our website about the Mayor and Councillors is current as at that date, and will be updated once the Electoral Commission of Queensland has declared all divisions. The elected members are to be sworn in at a Special Meeting scheduled for 10am on Wednesday 6 April 2016.
The Councillors represent nine divisions, and each Councillor is elected by eligible voters in each division. The Mayoralty is decided on a majority popular vote across the entire local government area which has 99,479 enrolled voters (as at March 2016).
