CRC’s new cor­po­rate struc­ture

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

CAIRNS Re­gional Coun­cil has an­nounced a new cor­po­rate struc­ture.

A chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer will lead a newly-cre­ated fi­nance de­part­ment while the former eco­nomic devel­op­ment coun­cil com­mit­tee will be ab­sorbed into the plan­ning com­mit­tee.

Mayor Bob Man­ning said the cen­tralised and spec- ialised fi­nance de­part­ment will over­see ex­pen­di­ture across all de­part­ments to im­prove accountability and stream­line ac­count­ing pro­cesses.

Hu­man re­sources and or­gan­i­sa­tional change will form a sep­a­rate de­part­ment, while the eco­nomic devel­op­ment and in­no­va­tion unit will trans­fer into the plan­ning and en­vi­ron­ment de­part­ment.

The eco­nomic devel­op­ment com­mit­tee will now be­come the plan­ning eco­nomic com­mit­tee.
