Hobsons Bay Mayor appointed to state advisory board

Mayor of Hobsons Bay, Tony Briffa, has been appointed to Victoria’s Local Government Mayoral Advisory Panel for 2023.

The panel is made up of 13 mayors from urban, regional and rural areas across the state.

The panel offers Local Government Minister Melissa Horne advice on legislative, regulatory, strategic and policy issues that affect councils.

Mayor Briffa said working closely with other governments had been set as a focus for her mayoral term.

“I’m pleased to be part of this panel and I’m looking forward to being able to contribute and work with Minister Horne and my fellow mayors,” she said.

“Strengthening the relationship between Council and the Victorian Government is a key part of my mayoral program for this year.

“I believe it is important that all tiers of government work well together, and this panel is a great chance to be able to collaborate with other Councils across Victoria and the state government to address issues that affect our communities every day.”
