Minister for Local Government, Shelley Hancock earlier today, July 24 announced the local government elections scheduled to take place on September 4 would be postponed to December 4.
Although not confirmed, it is believed the date shift is a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in Greater Sydney.
Ms Shelley Hancock said the election date had been pushed back from September 4 to December 4 for all NSW councils except the Central Council which was in the hands of a administrator.
This is the second time the local government elections have been postponed.
