Chisholm takes reins in Mitchell

By McIvor Times

COUNCILLOR Bill Chisholm is Mitchell Shire Council’s new mayor, after being elected at a recent council meeting.

Mayor Chisholm was elected with a 6-3 vote over Cr David Lowe, and will hold the role for 12 months.

Cr David Atkinson was unanimously elected unopposed as deputy mayor.

Cr Chisholm takes over the role from fellow north ward councillor Rhonda Sanderson, who has served as Mitchell Shire’s mayor for the past two years.

Councillors are now halfway through their four-year term, after being elected in 2016.
