New Council Starts Immediately

At 12:10pm Thursday 12 May 2016 Jerilderie Shire Council ceased to exist. Jerilderie became part of a new Council “Murrumbidgee Council”.

The NSW Government adopted the counter proposal put forward by Jerilderie Shire Council on behalf of its community.

Murrumbidgee Shire Council merged with Jerilderie Shire Council creating a new Local Government Area of 6680 sq km with a population of 4047 and encompassing the communities of Jerilderie, Coleambally and Darlington Point.

Interim General Manager of the new Council is Mr Craig Moffitt and the Administrator is Mr Austin Evans.

The Councillors of the two Councils will be approached to continue their involvement in Community Advisory Committees leading up to an election scheduled for September 2017.
