The elected Council is made up of the Mayor and 14 Councillors. They are responsible for determining local legislation and defining the overall vision for the city. The Mayor and Councillors appoint a chief executive to manage Council operations and lead the Council's administrative organisation. The chief executive has statutory powers granted by the Local Government Act and other powers granted at the discretion of the elected Council.
The chief executive is responsible for:
• Advising the Mayor and Councillors on policy matters.
• Ensuring any policy adopted by Council is correctly implemented.
The chief executive performs these responsibilities by delegating tasks and authority to a senior management team and other Council staff.
Elected as Mayor in November 2017
