He will serve in the role for the next 12 months. Hills Shire Mayor Michelle Byrne congratulated him saying she was looking forward to working with him “as we deliver on our ambitious $260 million Capital Works Program in 2020-21”.
She also thanked outgoing Deputy Mayor Councillor Reena Jethi for her commitment to The Hills over the past 12 months.
Clr Jethi has served this community well and will continue to be recognised as an advocate for women in Local Government and for The Hills business community,” Mayor Byrne said.
“I would like to thank Clr Jethi for her support and hard work throughout the past 12 months.
From fires to floods, and a worldwide pandemic – it’s been a challenging time, but I’m really proud of how we’ve worked together as a team to overcome some of these obstacles.
