EPLGA is the umbrella body for regional councils in South Australia. Its mandate is to represent the interests of its members at all meetings and to make recommendations to the Minister for Regional Development. It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors to develop and implement an annual budget and to submit the reports to the constituent councils. It is also responsible for the preparation and submission of audited financial statements. In addition, the Executive Officer must keep proper books of accounts.
The EPLGA is governed by a council of local government representatives who are elected every four years to serve the region
It is chaired by Mayor Sam Telfer and he is supported by Peter Scott, who is the current executive officer. The board consists of representatives from regional governments and councils. The membership of EPLGA is about one million people. The councils of the area are all merged under the Regional Development Australia, which manages the Councils of the region.
The Council has named a new executive officer to oversee the association
Peter Scott replaces Tony Irvine, who will retire at the end of 2019. He will bring a wealth of experience and a strong working relationship with local government bodies and councils. In his previous role, he was responsible for the Economic Development of the Whyalla and Eyre Peninsula and has extensive experience in liaising with local government and the business community.
