The City of Burnie is a local government area of Tasmania. It covers the city of Burnie and surrounding areas, although it does not include the town of Somerset - usually classed as part of the Burnie metropolitan area.
The city's motto is "non nobis solum" (not for ourselves alone); for many years this was on the council seal but in 1992 a new, more colourful logo was created which did not include the motto. It did also not include the emu (which had been Burnie's unofficial animal emblem). Burnie's floral emblem is the rhododendron.
The Burnie City Council consists of nine aldermen, who each serve a four-year term of office; Ald. Anita Dow was elected as Burnie's Mayor in 2014. The Deputy Mayor is Ald. Alvwyn Boyd. The other members are:
|Alvwyn Boyd||Deputy Mayor/Alderman||Independent|
