Another Ballarat councillor has taken himself out of the mayoral race next month.

Peter Eddy says he just wants to be a good councillor, and given his age he can serve Ballarat better outside the mayoral chair.

He says current mayor Daniel Moloney's done a fine job in what's been a trying time for the city.

"He does a terrific job and has been good at growing the council, that said I think there will be one or two other people who will put their hand up and be equally as strong in different ways," he said.
