The City of Whittlesea was dismissed on Saturday 21 March following the passage of the Local Government (Whittlesea City Council) Act 2020 through the Victorian Parliament.
In June 2020 interim Administrator Lydia Wilson was appointed Chair of the Panel of Administrators with Peita Duncan appointed an Administrator. Chris Eddy was appointed as the third Administrator in 2021.
Administrators carry out the role, responsibilities and functions of Councillors as set out in the Local Government Act and the Panel undertakes the role of the Council.
The Panel of Administrators will remain until the October 2024 local government election, at which point new councillors will be elected.
