Bye back as Wellington Mayor

Wellington Shire Council has tonight re-elected Councillor Ian Bye as Mayor for a third consecutive term.

Joining him is Councillor Gayle Maher, who was elected as Deputy Mayor for the final year of the current Council.

Mayor Bye said he was honoured to again be given the opportunity to guide Wellington, particularly during the final year of a Council term.

He extended thanks to his family and fellow councillors for their support as he steps into a third term as Mayor.

“I would like to thank my fellow councillors and the Wellington community for their support during my time as Mayor. It really is a great privilege to be trusted to lead this Council to deliver its strategic priorities,” he said.

“I believe that The Middle of Everywhere really is the best place to live and I hold our community close to my heart. During this term, my commitment is to advocate for Wellington’s future, ensuring that we use every opportunity to drive positive change and sustainable growth in the region.”

Reflecting on the challenges faced in recent years, Mayor Bye expressed his pride at how Council worked collaboratively to overcome them.

“I am looking forward to working with our community, celebrating local events and focusing on key initiatives such a renewable energy investment, improved early years infrastructure, local job creation, housing and infrastructure development including overseeing the Aqua Energy Leisure Centre redevelopment in Sale” he said.
