Councillors Mark Liebich, Carly Brown, Geoff McLelland and Chad White tendered their resignations this week.
The resignation of Cr White was announced on Tuesday and the resignations of Cr Liebich, Brown and McClelland on Thursday.
The announcements for Cr Liebich, Brown and McClelland were identical with council stating on its facebook page it regretted to inform the community of the resignations of all three and thanking them for their contribution.
