This week, Kevin Rilett tendered his resignation as Councillor in the City of Onkaparinga, effective 31 January 2024. He has advised this is due to a relocation interstate for employment reasons. 

Kevin, who represents Pimpala Ward (covering Happy Valley, Reynella East, Woodcroft and parts of O’Halloran Hill and Darlington), was elected in November 2022.

On behalf of Council, I thank him for his service to the community and wish him all the best for the future. 

A supplementary election will be held to fill the vacant Pimpala Ward Councillor position. This process is managed by the Electoral Commission SA who will advise voters on a date for the election in due course.
