Four of the five sitting Labor councillors will re-contest this year's local government election on September 12.

Mark Greenhill, Mick Fell, Romola Hollywood and Don McGregor have all been pre-selected by the ALP to stand again.

Darryl Bowling, from ward 4, has moved to Tasmania for family reasons and will not nominate. His place on the mayor's ticket has been taken by local teacher Nyree Fisher with the number three position to be filled by retired public service librarian Helen Clifford.

In ward 3, Cr Mick Fell's running mates will be Kim Cowper and teacher Clare Laws.

In ward 2, Romola Hollywood will run again with Woodford resident Claire West and former councillor Annette Bennett.

And in ward 1, Cr Don McGregor will stand with women's health advocate Suzie Van Opdorp with former councillor and Food Bank volunteer, Sarah Shrubb, at number three on the ticket.

Neither the Liberal Party nor the Greens have completed their pre-selection processes.
