Newly elected Mayor of Moyne Shire Cr Daniel Meade has highlighted Council’s strong financial position and its ongoing comittment to working with the local community in his acceptance speech.

The mayoral announcement was made following a vote at Moyne Shire’s Special Annual Meeting of Council on Wednesday, 26 November.

Cr Meade thanked his fellow Councillors for their support and acknowledged the work of outgoing Mayor, Cr Mick Wolfe.

“I’d like to thank Cr Wolfe for his service as Mayor for the past two years, in particular the last 12 months where I have worked closely with him as his deputy,” Cr Meade said.

“Moyne Shire is a great place to live and work and I am optimistic about our future in continuing to grow and prosper.

“Council is in a good position and I believe it’s our duty to ensure it stays that way, so we can continue to deliver and improve on community projects, road maintenance and upgrades, and the important services we provide to the people of Moyne in childcare and home and community care.

“I thank councillors for giving me this opportunity to be their mayor and I will work hard to repay the faith shown today. I look forward to serving the people of Moyne as their Mayor.”

Outgoing Mayor, Cr Mick Wolfe reflected on his time served as Mayor of Moyne Shire.

“It has been a very positive year for the Shire; increased funding for capital projects, improved results in the annual Customer Satisfaction Survey, and growing relationships with our smaller, regional communities,” Cr Wolfe said.

“We have made immense steps in communicating with our community, appointed a new Director of Economic Development and Planning, and we continue to get positive feedback from across the country on Council’s decision to return the $1 million in Federal drought relief funding.

“I would like to thank the community, fellow councillors and council staff for your support over the past year, and I look forward to another progressive year for Moyne Shire.”
