Division 11 Councillor Natalie Willcocks has been elected Chairperson of Logan City Council’s City Governance Committee.

Fellow first-term Councillor Karen Murphy from Division 12, was voted Deputy
Chairperson of the same committee.

The appointments – made at today’s Ordinary Council Meeting – were required after
Councillor Lisa Bradley resigned from the Chairperson role in November.

Cr Willcocks said she was honoured to be elected to the role in her first term after
previously serving as Deputy Chairperson.

“We have already begun budget discussions for 2021/2022 and Councillor Murphy
and I are looking forward to the opportunity to work collaboratively with the other
Councillors and Council officers to deliver the budget.”

“The policy decisions this committee makes have long lasting impacts on the city’s
future and are an important part of our duties in these roles.”

Cr Murphy said she was looking forward to working with Councillors and staff in her
new role as Deputy Chairperson.

The City Governance Committee makes recommendations on strategy and policy
relating to Council’s corporate governance, finance, facilities and property, human
resources, information technology and fleet.

It is one of four standing committees that meet regularly to make recommendations
that are later presented to Ordinary Council Meetings for endorsement through
formal Council resolutions.

The next committee meetings are scheduled for February 16 and 17. More
