About Rockdale City Council

Councillors are elected by residents every four years. The Mayor is elected each year by the Councillors.

The General Manager controls the day-to-day management of the Council. Led by the General Manager, the staff implement Council decisions to provide works and services to the City.


Rockdale City Council holds regular Council meetings on a Wednesday night starting at 7pm. See Council Meetings for further information including the business papers for those meetings.


Council's Customer Service Centre is located at 444-446 Princes Highway, Rockdale

Committees and Delegates

Council establishes Committees focussed on particular areas to assist it in undertaking its responsibilities. Advisory Committees do not have formal delegation to act for Council, but rather make recommendations. Committees report to Council through the provision of Minutes of Meetings.

In addition, Councillors participate in external forums in order to further our objectives. Such forums are often community groups or groups of Councils with a common interest. See the Delegates to External Bodies page for details of the forums and Council's delegates.

Sister Cities

Based on the belief that peace can be achieved by building understanding between ordinary people, the Sister City program was introduced to the world by the United State's Eisenhower Government in 1952.

To this day, Sister City relationships encourage cultural and social contact, as well as giving the cities involved the chance to explore educational and economic opportunities.

Rockdale City Council has Sister City links with these cities:

  • Takeo, Cambodia
  • Tanggu, China
  • Bitola, Macedonia
  • Glyfada, Greece
  • Rockdale, Texas, USA
  • Bint Jbail, Lebanon
  • Yamatsuri, Japan
  • Gilgandra, Australia

Rockdale City Council also has a Friendship City link with Arica in Chile. This community based link explores cultural and economic opportunities between the communities of Rockdale and Arica.
