Tuesday 10 October 2017

Councillor Tony Bell resigned from the Mount Alexander Shire Council yesterday, Monday 9 October.

Mr Bell served Mount Alexander Shire for five years, being first elected as one of three Castlemaine Ward representatives in October 2012. He was re-elected in October 2016.

“Tony’s resignation represents a significant loss for Mount Alexander Shire,” said Chief Executive Officer, Darren Fuzzard.

“Tony always looked for ways to make the rates that we collect go further. He was at the forefront of recent successful initiatives to get willing community groups more involved in delivering projects traditionally done by the Shire.

“One of his legacies will be the confidence and desire we have as an organisation to keep pursuing even closer working relationships with our very capable and generous community.

“Tony brought more than 30 years of business experience in earth moving and a life time of local knowledge to Council discussions.

“His insights, especially in relation to Local Government’s staple businesses of roads, rates and rubbish, were very highly valued around the Council table and will be greatly missed,” Mr Fuzzard said.

The Chief Executive Officer has written to the Victorian Electoral Commission to advise of Tony’s resignation and to seek advice on how the vacant seat will be filled.
