Unofficial counting has Division 6 Cr Bernie Wilce losing his seat to newcomer Kylie Lang, with Clinton Stroud taking second spot.

In Division 1, Deputy Mayor Kevin Cardew looks to be in for a comfortable win against Douglas Tait but with only 10% of the votes counted on Monday morning, it is still to be determined.

Similarly in Division 2, Cr Annette Haydon has a good lead over closest rival Ken Carey, with 44% of votes counted there.

In Division 4, which was vacated by Cr David Clifton, veteran Cameron McCollum had a lead of less than 50 votes from his closest opponent Maree Baade as of 11am on Monday, but only 27% of the votes had been counted.

Division 3’s Dave Bilney and Division 5’s Con Spanos were elected unopposed.
