Council Committees

When the former Councils of Evandale, Ross, Campbell Town, Longford and part of Fingal were amalgamated to create the Northern Midlands Council in 1993, there was a high level of concern across the municipal area about the loss of the local Council presence and availability. It was decided to establish four District Forums / Committees at Ross, Campbell Town, Evandale and Avoca, Royal George & Rossarden as Special Committees of Council. Council has since introduced additional Special Committees for the Perth, Longford and Cressy areas.

General Information
