Mayor on LGAT committee

Term. Circular Head Mayor Daryl Quilliam will continue to represent the region on the Local Government Association of Tasmania.

The new members of the committee will take up their appointment at the conclusion of the LGAT annual general meeting on July 26. The election of vice president will take place at that time.

Mayor Quilliam, who currently holds the position of vice president, has been appointed as a member of the General Management Committee of LGAT for a further two years.

At the May Circular Head Council meeting, councillors voted to nominate Mayor Quilliam for the position of both member and president. He was unsuccessful on the latter, however says he will again put up his hand for vice president when the time comes.

“I still want to be heavily involved with the leadership of the LGAT,” he said on Tuesday.

The committee of eight meets four times yearly and provides oversight to LGAT operations, which work to protect the interests and rights of councils.

Clarence City Council Mayor Doug Chipman continues to hold the position of president.

Mayor Quilliam also continues to represent the state’s councils on the board of the Australian Local Government Association.
