The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) has completed a representation review of Bayside City Council. Their report was released on 9 October 2019.
Their recommendation is that Bayside City Council retains its current electoral structure with adjustments to the current ward boundaries (seven councillors elected from one three-councillor ward and two two-councillor wards). The VEC provided this recommendation to the Minister for Local Government. The Minister will decide whether to accept their recommendation. Any changes will apply at the next general council election in October 2020.
