Jenny Houlihan is the clear favourite to be elected mayor at today’s Greater Shepparton City Council statutory meeting.
As well as electing a mayor and deputy mayor, the first formal meeting of the new council will consider remuneration and set the schedule for ordinary meetings.
A change in time for ordinary meetings is on the cards, with a proposal to push the start time back to 5.30
Later meetings were trialled for several months in early 2010, but reverted to the old 1
If adopted, the new 5.30
Meetings would still be held on the third Tuesday of each month except for January.
It is also proposed from next year the council hits the road for ordinary meetings.
The April 2013 meeting is suggested for Mooroopna and the September meeting for Tatura to facilitate greater involvement from those communities.
Today’s meeting will also set the remuneration for the mayor and councillors, with a total annual cost of $236
A mayoral allowance is proposed of $69
The allowance is in addition to any out-of-pocket expenses incurred by councillors while performing their duties as council members.
Both allowances are at the tip of the range for a category two council.
