Deputy mayor decision to be made at first council meeting

GRAHAM Scott says he has not considered the prospect of becoming deputy mayor of Livingstone Shire Council.

The consulting engineer is one of four fresh faces on the new council, joining the experienced hands of mayor-elect Bill Ludwig and councillors Glenda Mather and Tom Wyatt.

The deputy will be elected at the first council meeting in January.

"I haven't had any thoughts about that," Mr Scott said.

"Whatever happens in January happens but until then I am focusing on fully understanding the role of councillor."

Cr Wyatt has ruled out taking on the position.

"If we believe in succession planning, we should be looking at someone younger," he said.

Cr Ludwig said nominations would be taken and it would go to a vote.

"We have enough things to think about at the moment," he said.

"It is on the agenda for a decision in January."
