The Minister for Local Government, the Hon Melissa Horne MP, has announced that two Municipal Monitors have been appointed to Brimbank City Council under section 179 of the Local Government Act 2020.

The appointment of Ms Janet Dore and Ms Penelope Holloway as monitors is to guide good governance and provide a report to the Minister at the end of their term.

Brimbank Mayor Councillor Ranka Rasic said the Council was committed to working together for the best interests of the local community.

“It’s crucial for all Councillors to know their duties under the Local Government Act, and work together for Brimbank’s good governance and the best outcomes for the community.

“It is absolutely essential the local community has confidence in the governance of Council by all of the elected representatives,” Cr Rasic said.
