Review of Elector Representation

NOTICE is hereby given that the Port Augusta City Council has undertaken a review to determine whether a change of arrangements in respect to elector representation will result in the electors of the area being more adequately and fairly represented.

As an outcome of this review Council proposes the following:


  1. The Principal Member of Council continues to be a Mayor, elected by the community.
  2. The Council area not be divided into wards (i.e. the existing “no wards” structure be retained).
  3. The future elected body of Council continue to comprise the Mayor and 9 area councillors).


Council has prepared a report which details the review process, public consultation undertaken and the proposal Council now considers should be carried into effect. A copy of the Representation Review Report is available free of charge at the Council Office and the Public Library in the Civic Centre, 4 Mackay Street, Port Augusta, and below:
