Whyalla Mayor Jim Pollock has stepped down from his duties citing family reasons for his sudden departure.
A special meeting of the LGA State Executive Committee will be held today following the LGA Conference and General Meeting.
The meeting will consider appointment of an acting president to take over from Mayor Felicity-ann Lewis whose term ends at the close of the General Meeting.
Mayor Jim Pollock said he regretted having to withdraw after having been elected unopposed earlier this year to take over from Mayor Lewis later this week.
“My family situation has changed and it’s become clear to me that I could not do justice to the position of President”, he said.
Ms Campana confirmed the LGA residency is a demanding position and offered her personal support to Mayor Pollock.
She indicated that the LGA State Executive Committee would continue to manage the business of the Association under interim leadership.
LGA presidents hold two year terms, alternating between country and metropolitan representatives.
The LGA provides a range of leadership services, representation to state and federal governments and bulk services including workers compensation
and liability cover.
