Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News - TRIS­TAN WHEELER

Boyup Brook Shire Coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Chris Smith has re­tired af­ter six months in the job.

His departure was an­nounced by shire pres­i­dent Richard Walker on Fri­day.

“On be­half of coun­cil, I would like to ex­press our ap­pre­ci­a­tion and grat­i­tude to Chris for the work he has done in the past six months in pro­gress­ing Boyup Brook and we wish him all the best in his re­tire­ment,” Cr Walker said.

The coun­cil’s gov­er­nance man­ager Pe­ter Dit­trich, pic­tured, has been ap­pointed as act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive. Mr Dit­trich has been with the coun­cil in a full-time ca­pac­ity since De­cem­ber 2019 and pre­vi­ously served as the chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Shire of Murchi­son. Mr Dit­trich paid trib­ute to the for­mer chief ex­ec­u­tive. “Chris achieved an amaz­ing amount while he was at the Shire of Boyup Brook,” he said. “We have two doc­tors in Boyup Brook, I think that is a pretty specky achieve­ment in the lim­ited time that he had, just to name one of his great achieve­ments.”
