The City of Greater Bendigo has named its newest councillor-elect after a countback yesterday.
Susie Hawke topped the list of votes from the 2016 election for the Eppalock Ward after Yvonne Wrigglesworth resigned last month.
Ms Wrigglesworth cited a difference in values between herself and many of her fellow councillors as the reason behind her resignation.
Ms Hawke received a total of 2957 votes after those cast for Ms Wrigglesworth in the 2016 election were distributed on preferences.
She now has 48 hours to return a declaration of eligibility before she's officially announced as the new Eppalock Ward councillor.
