We need to be frugal: Livingstone elected councillor Wyatt

ESTABLISHED councillor Tom Wyatt believed establishing a budget management plan for the new council was a top priority once the new entity was in place on January 1.

"We basically have no committed State and Federal Government funding and we need to be frugal in our approach when it comes to the operation of things," he said.

Cr Wyatt said he was humbled to be one of three candidates leading at the polls yesterday.

He was sitting comfortably in second at 6.30pm yesterday.

"The next two years are going to be very important for the council.

"The de-amalgamation put us in a weak financial position so we will have to work the hard yards," he said.
