Invercargill City Council

Invercargill City Council

The Invercargill City Council is chosen by the Invercargill public in elections held every three years. The last election was held in October 2010; the next will be in 2013.

The Council consists of the Mayor and 12 Councillors and its role is to provide and maintain services and amenities for the public of Invercargill. There are two main parts to Invercargill City Council: the Council (elected representatives) and the Corporate (staff).

The Council is chosen by electors (the Invercargill public) to govern the city's affairs, such as making decisions on spending, priorities and policies.

The Mayor is a member of the four Council standing committees, which are chaired by Councillors Neil Boniface (Finance and Policy), Carolyn Dean (Infrastructure Services), Darren Ludlow (Regulatory Services) and Lindsay Abbott (Community Services).
