MARGARET O’Rourke was installed on Tuesday for a second term as mayor, and councillor Jennifer Alden as her deputy.

The pair will preside in a year that has the potential to offer Bendigo opportunities in the lead-up to a state election.

A select committee into regional development will report to the federal government and investment flows into renewable energy.

In the coming weeks, the pair will also announce a new five-year term for a council chief executive, a job which the council has advertised and invited incumbent Craig Niemann to reapply for.
