Mayoral election by councillors will be held at the September 23, 2019 meeting.
The mayor will hold the office for one year until the next council elections where the public get to vote for their 15 councillors.
Mayor Jane Smith, the first mayor of the Central Coast Council, was elected two years ago by her fellow councillors.
Mayor Smith was elected on the votes of the four Liberals: Jilly Pilon, Rebecca Gale Collins, Chris Burke ,Troy Marquart plus three of the independents: Greg Best, Chris Holstein and Bruce McLachlan.
The six ALP councillors; Doug Vincent, Jillian Hogan, Kyle MacGregor, Richard Mehrtens, Lisa Matthews, Jeff Sundstrom, and independent Louise Greenaway voted for Doug Vincent.
The 15 councillors were the first elected to Central Coast Council after Gosford and Wyong councils were amalgamated in May 2016 and run by an administrator until September 2017.
The council will hold two more ordinary council meetings before the mayoral election.
