SA announces mayoral roundtable

The South Australian Government has announced it will hold a roundtable with all of the state’s newly elected Mayors, pledging to work closer and more collaboratively with the local government sector.

“I want to congratulate every candidate across South Australia who ran for Mayor or Councillor in their local area – it takes commitment to put yourself forward to earn the trust of the local community,” said State Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll.

“It’s very positive to see so many women elected to leadership positions across the state, with a number of new female Mayors elected, along with many female Councillors.

The Minister will hold roundtable discussions with all Mayors before the end of the year to discuss policies and programs through which State and Local governments can collaborate.

“I will be inviting all Mayors from across regional SA and metropolitan Adelaide to participate in a roundtable before the end of the year to discuss the key priorities of the local government sector and how the State Government can partner with the sector to deliver for ratepayers,” said Mr Knoll.

“This will be an opportunity for new and re-elected Mayors to put forward their plans and priorities for their respective local areas, as well as having a broader discussion on local government and economic development.
