Don’t forget the City of Canterbury Bankstown elections will be held this Saturday 9 September.
The Council is one of 46 across NSW going to the polls to decide who will represent them for the next three years.
It’s the first time since the amalgamation on 12 May 2016 that around 160,000 residents have the opportunity to vote.
The new Council will comprise 15 Councillors, made up of three Councillors per ward for Bass Hill, Bankstown, Canterbury, Revesby and Roselands.
Appointed interim Administrator, Richard Colley, said Council is in a great position to hand back to the elected Councillors in the coming weeks.
"The transition period, since 12 May 2016, has been a very busy time, with the alignment of contracts, processes, procedures and systems," he said.
"Like any major City, we have and will always have challenges to tackle but those challenges are due to the success of a developing and progressive City.
"Bringing these two large organisations together has taken significant time, energy and resources, and while we are only a fraction of the way there, I am proud of the progress interim General Manager, Matthew Stewart, and his great staff have made.
"I am very confident we have laid a solid foundation for the City’s new Councillors, who will be elected this coming weekend."
Some achievements include:
"While these are significant actions that have taken place, there are hundreds of improvements that have also been introduced, aimed at the delivery of even better services for our residents," Mr Colley said.
"What happens next will be up to the new Council to decide. It’s their advocacy and support, which will determine the future of our City. This is why I remind you again to vote this weekend so that you can have the right people champion for your rights and for your City."
