The first ever comprehensive review of Victoria’s local government electoral system was today announced by Minister for Local Government Jeanette Powell.
Mrs Powell said the aim of the review is to deliver strong and effective local democracy and ensure councils continue to be responsible and accountable to their local communities across Victoria.
“All Victorians should have faith in the system that elects local representatives to govern and make important decisions affecting their communities,” Mrs Powell said.
