Mayor and Councillors

The Masterton District Council has a Mayor and 10 Councillors. These positions are elected at-large, every three years. 

Responsibility for Council activities sits with the Mayor and Councillors. The Council makes decisions about the range of services and activities that will be provided. The Council sets the policy for these and then the staff are asked to do the work to make sure the services are provided. The Council has some freedom to decide on its aims and policies but it has to do this within the laws, regulations and requirements that are set by Central Government.

Council and the Committee Structure

Decision-making about policy and control of district operations is done in formal meetings. Meetings are held every six weeks. The Infrastructure and Services Committee also meets six-weekly, the Audit and Risk Committee meets quarterly and other Committees (e.g. the Awards and Grants Committee, the Hearings Committee and the CE Performance Review Committee) meet when they need to.
