New Deputy and Committee Chairs



At last night’s Ordinary Alice Springs Town Council meeting Alderman Liz Martin was unanimously voted in as the new Deputy Mayor.


Deputy Mayor Martin said she is looking forward to tackling the tough topics “There is certainly a challenging year ahead of Council with some big issues on the agenda like the new sub-divisions of Kilgariff and AZRI, the first operational year of the new Aquatic and Leisure Centre as well as maintaining our core business of roads, rates and rubbish.”


The Council Committee Chairs are:

  • Alderman John Rawnsley the Chair for Finance,
  • Alderman Sandy Taylor for Corporate and Community Services
  • and previous Deputy Mayor, Alderman Brendan Heenan will Chair the Technical Services Committee.


Council Committee Chairs and Deputy Mayor positions are elected on a yearly basis each March.  The previous Deputy Mayor, Alderman Heenan, did not stand for re-election of Deputy and Council thanks him for his commitment to the role.


A full list of Council Committee representatives will be available with the meeting minutes.
