How Council Works
The elected council for Hornsby Shire consists of ten councillors comprising a popularly elected Mayor and three councillors representing each of the three wards. The councillor's role is to direct and control the affairs of council according to the Local Government Act and other relevant legislation. Councillors are elected to represent the interests of residents and ratepayers, provide leadership and guidance to the community and encourage communication between council and the community. The mayor presides at council meetings and is the public face of council.
Hornsby Shire Council is managed by an executive team led by the General Manager. Four executive managers support the General Manager. Together they manage the following divisions: Corporate Support Division, Environment and Human Services Division, Planning Division and the Infrastructure & Recreation Division. See the Management page for more details.
The Delivery Program (previously known as Management Plan) documents council's principal instruction to its organisation.
