Recommendation

 

THAT:

1.  The information be noted

2.  The action of the Mayor and Deputy Mayor be endorsed

 

 

I refer to discussions and resolutions from the meeting of Council held on 12th June 2012 and confirm my previous advice to Councillors that Mr Andrew Hopkins has accepted the position of General Manager with Cabonne Council.

 

Mr Hopkins will commence duties on Monday 30th July, however will be available to attend Council’s Ordinary Meeting on the 16th July 2012.

 

It was originally hoped to have a longer hand over from retiring General Manager, Graeme Fleming, however due to personal arrangements with Mr Hopkins family’s return to Australia, this has not been possible. General Manager, Graeme Fleming has indicated however, his preparedness to provide extra assistance to Mr Hopkins, post 3rd August 2012 should it be required. This is certainly appreciated.

 

All staff have been notified of Mr Hopkins appointment and appropriate media releases have been issued to all Cabonne and other local media.

 

Contract arrangements are being finalised with the assistance of Mr Stephen Blackadder and Council’s current General Manager, Graeme Fleming and unless unforseen circumstances arise, all should be in readiness for Mr Hopkins commencement.
