About Mosman Council
New South Wales Local Government is administered and governed by Councils and is controlled and regulated by the Local Government Act 1993.
Mosman Municipal Council consists of two functional units. One is the elected Council comprising seven Councillors including the popularly elected Mayor; the other is the permanent staff of the Council, who work at the Council offices and other Council locations.
The elected Councillors set and control policy directions whilst the staff, headed by the General Manager, implement policy and legislative requirements. All strive together to anticipate and meet community needs and expectations.
The elected Council comprises the Mayor and six Councillors.
The Mayor and Councillors receive adequate and reasonable expenses and facilities to enable them to carry out their civic duties as elected representative of the Mosman community.
The Mosman Local Government Area is represented by seven Councillors elected to office every four years.
The General Manager is required to keep a public register of all current donations and expenditure declarations lodged by Councillors with the Election Funding Authority of NSW.
Mosman Council administration is organised into 3 departments: Corporate Services, Environment & Planning and Community Development.
Mosman Council was established in 1893. Its official seal incorporates symbols of Mosman’s history. Its motto translates as in safe waters.
