Councillors

The Shire of Carnarvon consists of 8 Councillors elected from five (5) wards including the Shire President, who is elected by the community for four-year terms. Councillor elections take place every two years with the Shire President election every four years. 

While Councillors represent their wards, together with the Shire President and Executive Leadership Team, they have a responsibility to the whole of the Shire of Carnarvon. Council makes decisions about strategy, policy, and budget priorities. 

Individual Councillors, including the Shire President, cannot make decisions as individuals.  The Council does not have any delivery or executive functions but relies on the decisions of most of the group which provides direction for the Chief Executive Officer to implement.
