The four councillors who will vote on important issues at the upcoming Local Government NSW conference have been determined.
Councillors Stephen Lawrence, Greg Mohr, Vicki Etheridge and John Ryan will be the voting delegates for the conference, while deputy mayor Anne Jones has been named as the alternate delegate.
The 2019 Local Government Annual Conference will be held in Sydney from October 14 to 16. It's a chance for councillors from across the state to come together and discuss and debate local government issues.

The conference also allows for councils from across NSW to network and share ideas and hear from guest speakers, such as the Local Government Minister.
As a NSWLG board member, mayor Ben Shields also gets a vote on the issues raised at the event.
Last year, Dubbo's motion at the conference was to change the local government ward system, which Cr Mohr said was "simply unfair" and "confusing".
The aim was for there to be one Dubbo ward and another Wellington ward. As it currently stands under the Local Government Act, wards must contain the same number of people.
The motion was narrowly won at the 2018 conference with 51 per cent of the votes.
However, for the ward system to be changed it would require an alteration to state laws.
Councils have until August 19 to submit any motions for this year's conference.
The number of voting delegates each council is allowed at the conference is determined based on the size of the local government area.
