Zac Miles has been elected Mayor of Hunters Hill, following the NSW Electoral Commission’s declaration today (Monday 20 December, 2021) of mayoral poll results from the 4 December local government elections.

Results to determine the election of Councillors in Hunters Hill’s North and South wards is expected after distribution of preferences counting, which the commission has scheduled for Wednesday (22 December, 2021).

Clr Miles has previously served two terms as a councillor in Hunters Hill.

He said today he was looking forward to bringing new energy to the Council in his role as Mayor.

This would include efforts to bring the organisation’s budget into surplus, as well as the refocusing on the business of local government including Hunters Hill’s road and footpath network and parks and public spaces.

Clr Miles said managing the ongoing effects of the COVID pandemic and helping bring our community back together, in a way that was safe to do so, would be a focus for the new term of Council.

Revitalising village centres across the municipality would be another priority.

“Reactivating these areas of Hunters Hill is so important, especially heading in to 2022, as many of our businesses, local service organisations and residents are dealing with the ongoing effects of the COVID pandemic,” Clr Miles said.

“We want to create vibrant villages and foster a night-time economy.”

The Council’s Acting General Manager Nick Tobin said the Mayor and Councillors would be officially inducted at a Council meeting in early January.
