Seems the rest of the state knows talent when they see it. A number of key Charters Towers Regional Council service delivery drivers have been appointed to key positions within the Local Government’s Peak Group.
The Local Government Association of Queensland’s ongoing policy development program will be enhanced with three senior Charters Towers Regional Council personnel to join three different LGAQ advisory groups.
Councillor Roma Bailey will continue his membership of the Roads Advisory Group, CEO Mark Crawley will join the Resources Communities Advisory Group and Director of Planning and Sustainable Development Leo Jensen will join the Planning and Development Advisory Group.
Excelsior Library manager Joan Adeville’s expertise has also been recognised at state level with Mrs Adeville appointed to the Public Libraries Advisory Group.
The accolades continue for Council staff with Visitor Information Centre coordinator Anita Fry appointed president of the Queensland Information Centre association.
CEO Mark Crawley says the involvement of Council representatives on three important LGAQ advisory groups was significant recognition of the ongoing contributions Charters Towers Regional Council is making to the LGAQ.
“This membership allows involvement and input into important policy development processes across a range of subjects within the LGAQ.”
“These appointments are also acknowledgment of the quality of our people.”
LGAQ advisory groups generally consist of a balanced representation of local government councillors, local government officers and representatives of relevant professional associations.
