In charge: Logan mayor Darren Power and deputy mayor Jon Raven at the first meeting of the new council.

Logan City Council might just be two meetings into its term, but at least one councillor thinks it is going OK.

Deputy mayor Jon Raven praised the new councillors for their work so far, and raised the issue of Local Government Minister Stirling Hinchcliffe sacking council in May 2019 during today's monthly meeting.

Eight councillors were charged by the Crime and Corruption Commission.

Crs Raven, Laurie Koranski, Darren Power and Lisa Bradley, did not face corruption charges, but lost their positions as a council quorum could not be formed.

Mr Hinchcliffe appointed retired public servant Tamara O'Shea as administrator.

Cr Raven told Cr Power, who is now Logan mayor, that he reckoned things were going all right with the new council.

"It's good to be back. Not just back in council, but back in general business," Cr Raven said.

"Now with a new council, we have a new committee and again our voices can be heard.

"I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all my colleagues for how well you've been working as a united team."
