Buloke Shire Council has appointed a new municipal monitor who is set to support council to follow good governance processes and practices. 

Victorian Minister for Local Government, Melissa Horne, has announced that Peter Harriott will begin as municipal monitor to Buloke Shire Council from 9 May 2024 until 31 December 2024. He will provide a report to the minister at the end of his term.

Mr Harriott has extensive experience and knowledge in local government, having worked in the sector over the past 30 years. He served as CEO at Greater Shepparton City Council from 2016 to early 2024, and has provided specialist governance advice to Strathbogie Shire Council.

Mr Harriott will advise and support Buloke Shire Council, and will ensure stability for the council in the lead up to and following the October 2024 elections.

The terms of reference for municipal monitors direct them to advise and provide any relevant assistance and support to the council to improve its governance processes and practices.

Minister Horne said, “Through his extensive knowledge of local government, Mr Harriott will support Buloke Shire Council to improve its governance and better meet the needs of the community it serves.”
