Be­nalla Ru­ral City Coun­cil is look­ing for a new chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer after Tony McIl­roy in­di­cated he would not reap­ply for the po­si­tion when his cur­rent con­tract runs out in De­cem­ber.

Mr Mcil­roy has had a long ca­reer in the lo­cal gov­ern­ment sec­tor, putting in more than 42 years, 15 as the BRRC CEO.

Mayor Don Firth said the po­si­tion of the chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer had been ad­ver­tised in ac­cor­dance with Sec­tion 94(3) of the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Act 1989.

‘‘The cur­rent CEO con­tract of em­ploy­ment is for a four-year term ex­pir­ing on De­cem­ber 31,’’ Cr Firth said.

‘‘Th­ese ad­ver­tis­ing and re­cruit­ment pro­cesses take quite some time, so it is time for us to be­gin now be­fore the ex­piry of the cur­rent con­tract.

‘‘Mr McIl­roy has been with the coun­cil for more than 15 years. He has led it from the time of dea­mal­ga­ma­tion, which was oper­a­tionally and fi­nan­cially very chal­leng­ing to the sta­ble and sus­tain­able po­si­tion it is in to­day.

‘‘Mr McIl­roy has in­di­cated he will not be ap­ply­ing for the po­si­tion.’’
