Local government elections are normally held every four years. However, due to the NSW Government’s proposal to merge Ku-ring-gai and Hornsby Councils, the elections planned for September 2016 have been postponed until September 2017.
Therefore voters in Ku-ring-gai and Hornsby will not take part in this year’s NSW local government elections.
Each year Ku-ring-gai Councillors elect a mayor from their ranks to represent and lead the Council. The next mayoral election is due to be held in September 2017.
