City of Palmerston

The City of Palmerston offices and Council Chambers are located on the first floor of Civic Plaza - corner of Chung Wah Terrace and University Avenue.

The Elected Council consists of the Mayor and six Aldermen including the Deputy Mayor.

Palmerston does not operate under a ward system with each Alderman serving the entire local community, rather than a specific region within the municipality.

Palmerston was originally governed by the Palmerston Development Authority, which later became the Palmerston Town Council, was designated a City in 2000 and became Palmerston City Council and now is known as the City of Palmerston.
