City of Greater Geelong

City of Greater Geelong Council
City of Greater Geelong Council

The City of Greater Geelong was sacked in April 2016 and replaced by administrators. Initially the term of administrators was to be until 2020 but this was subsequently reduced to see councilors elected in 2017.

The 2017 elections saw a new ward structure replacing single-councilor wards with four multi-councilor wards. The 2017 boundaries will not be changed for the 2020 election.

Mayors in the City of Greater Geelong are appointed by their fellow councillors for two years. Cr Bruce Harwood served as mayor from 2017-2019 and then Cr Stephanie Asher was appointed mayor.
