Did you know that local government elections will be held in October this year?

Local government elections are held every two years, with the next round on 16 October 2021. Nominations open on 2 September 2021 and close at 4pm on 9 September 2021.

At the 2021 elections the Shire of Katanning will reduce the number of elected members from 9 to 7. Council members are elected for a term of up to four years.

Anyone intending to nominate for election must first complete a free online induction course, provided by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) on the link below. The course gives community members a basic understanding of what is required from a council member before nominations open in early September.
