PRESSURE is mounting on Local Government Minister Bryan Green to push back October's council elections with 26 Tasmanian mayors supporting a delay.
Mr Green earlier this week said he was "seriously considering" a strong preference from mayors and councillors to delay the elections until next year.
He said he would consider public views on an election delay once public comment on local government electoral changes closed.
Public comment on the changes closed on Thursday.
But Local Government Association of Tasmania president Barry Easther said if Mr Green wished to see the date changed, he would have said so by now.
He said 26 mayors supported local government elections next year, two mayors objected to a change and one was undecided.
Mr Easther believed electoral changes could be implemented a year earlier than they are scheduled to be in 2015 if the election date of October 29 was changed.
