Mildura Rural City Council Representation Reviews

Current representation review

The VEC is conducting an electoral representation review of Mildura Rural City Council and is seeking community input.

Representation reviews ensure all voters in a municipality have their concerns and interests fairly and equitably represented at the local council level. The review will examine:

  • the appropriate number of councillors
  • whether the council should be split into wards or be unsubdivided and
  • if subdivided, the number of wards, ward boundaries, the number of councillors per ward and possible ward names.

There are three main opportunities for you to have your say:

  • in a preliminary submission
  • in a response submission to the preliminary report, and
  • if you have requested to speak in your response submission, at a public hearing to be held in your local area.
