“I have contacted the newly elected Councillors by phone and am writing to all Councillors on behalf of Council staff to congratulate them on their election, and I know we will all work closely together to achieve outcomes for the community,” she said.
A formal declaration from the NSW Electoral Commission will take place on Wednesday this week, followed by a Councillor induction on Monday 26 September.
