It's year since the new council was elected.

AFTER 12 months in the job, we recap some of the highlights for each of the councillors and Mayor.

Cast your vote on whether or not their performance has been satisfactory.

Division 1: Cr James Hansen was able to show his rural constituents he is one of them when he had to save his dairy cows from flood waters in January. Cr Hansen has also been vocal in pushing for better pest management from the council.

Division 3: Cr Chris Loft told Maryborough he would clean up the "mess" left by previous councillor Julie Arthur. After being elected, Cr Loft went very quiet on this issue and a snap poll after six months revealed some could not see anything had changed.

Division 4: The youngest of the councillors, Daniel Sanderson, has kept his head down, but his portfolio of city and town centre development has thrown him a few curveballs, such as explaining a decision to award a $30,000 consultancy contract to previous councillor Anne Nioa.
