Your council

Every two years in October, the Fremantle community elects one councillor for each of the City's six wards - North, South, East, City, Hilton and Beaconsfield.

The next election is a mayoral election and will be held in October 2017.

The mayor is elected by the combined electorate of all wards. The mayor and councillors are elected for a four year term. Together the elected members make up council, and act as a community board representing community interests at council and committee meetings.

The City of Fremantle Council has 13 elected members - 12 councillors and the mayor.
