CRC’s new corporate structure
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.
