Powers and duties

Selection process

Remuneration

At the time of the council's sacking in 1993, councillors were paid an allowance of $1,500 per annum, not including other allowances (e.g. travel).[1]

Councillors by ward

For councillors and administrators after the 1994 amalgamation, see Councillors of Boroondara Council.

1993 to 1994

During this period, following the dismissal of all councillors at the City of Camberwell, the Victorian Government appointed Des Bethke as administrator to run the council in their absence.[2]

1934 to 1993

In 1934, the Council applied to the Victorian Government to create an extra ward after a lengthy process and many attempts.[3] This resulted in North Ward being split into North East Ward and North West Ward. As part of the reforms, all sitting councillors were required to retire and nominate themselves for re-election if they wished to do so.[4][5]
