Local Government Minister Peter Gutwein has appointed Ms Adriana Taylor as Commissioner of the Huon Valley Council for the coming twelve months.
Ms Taylor takes the leadership role at Council, after the dismissal of all nine Huon Valley councillors following the State Government’s Board of Inquiry.
Ms Taylor has a wealth of experience in local and state government. She was elected to the Glenorchy City Council in 1999, and served as mayor from 2005 until 2011. She was a member of the Legislative Council from 2010 to earlier this year.
Mr Gutwein said he respected Ms Taylor’s ability and common sense.
“Commissioner Taylor has the skills, knowledge and experience to provide the stability and certainty that the Huon Valley Council needs,” he said.
Commissioner Taylor says she welcomes the opportunity to work closely with the council staff and the community to provide stable leadership for the next twelve months.
“I’m honoured to take on the task for the people of the Huon Valley. I look forward to meeting with members of the community and business groups from the Valley to represent their views in decision making and advocacy.”
