Smith to lead Moyne
Moyne Shire Council has a new mayor, with Cr Ian Smith elected to the role late last month.
Cr Karen Foster was elected deputy mayor. In accepting the position, Cr Smith thanked his fellow councillors for their support and paid tribute to outgoing mayor Cr Karen Foster.
“Cr Foster has done a fantastic job over the past 12 months, and I thank her for the extraordinary efforts she has made for the betterment of Moyne and I’m looking forward to working with her as deputy mayor,” Cr Smith said.
“It’s going to be an exciting year. We have a huge program of works to get through including kicking off the Koroit Township Renewal, a new playground and skatepark for Port Fairy, a splashpad and playground in Macarthur and a significant program of road works.
“We also have a significant agenda and we’ll be continuing our Spring Street and Canberra advocacy to try and gain support for our projects and attention for the issues that matter most to our community – including the condition of state-controlled roads and critical funding for community infrastructure.”
