Councillors

Councillors elected by the community set strategic directions for council, as well as playing a major role in the planning and delivering of services that meet community needs.

Pyrenees Shire has the following duly elected Councillors: 


Avoca Ward - Cr Ron Eason

Phone: 0417 508 471
Email:
avoca@pyrenees.vic.gov.au

Cr Ron Eason and his wife Jenny came to Avoca in 2009 after purchasing the Newsagency.  They moved from Tatura in the Goulburn Valley where the land is flat. The hills and the scenery of the Pyrenees is a pleasure to behold. Running the Newsagency together, has allowed us to get to know the community we are in and the people of our Shire.

As a first time Councillor the road ahead is exciting and daunting but with the support of Jenny and my constituents, I hope to provide a understanding ear for the community and an advocate for our Shire. 

Please feel free to call in to the shop and discuss any matter you wish me to help with.
