Morawa Shire Council

The Morawa Shire Council strives to be a professional, viable, and “in touch” local government providing leadership and direction.

The council consists of seven members. Councillors are elected by the constituents and are to serve a minimum three year term. At the end of this term the councillor’s position will be open for re-election.

Being a shire councillor is a rewarding yet sometimes challenging opportunity. It offers the opportunity to be involved with Shire matters first hand, to learn about your local shire and other local shires within the state and to actively work towards ensuring a successful future for our community. We encourage you to contact your local Shire councillors with any queries, issues or suggestions that you would like addressed at Council.
