Grant Smith - Mayor

Do you want to talk to the mayor about an issue?

The mayor holds public sessions in Council's Customer Service Centre on The Square each week and once a month in Ashhurst. If you would like to come along and chat, just phone Council’s Customer Service Centre and ask for available times.

Invite the mayor to talk at your event

The mayor attends many events throughout the year. If you would like him to attend your event please email with the details of the event and your request will be considered. If the mayor is unable to make it we will endeavour to arrange for the deputy mayor or a city councillor to attend instead.
