Chief role made per­ma­nent

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Victoria Park -

AF­TER more than 12 months with An­thony Vuleta in an act­ing role, the po­si­tion of chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer at the Town of Vic­to­ria Park will soon be made per­ma­nent.

Mr Vuleta filled the po­si­tion when for­mer chief ex­ec­u­tive Arthur Ky­ron re­signed in De­cem­ber 2013.

The se­lec­tion and re­cruit­ment process for the role will be fi­nalised within three months, be­fore the end of the fi­nan­cial year, fol­low­ing the State Gov­ern­ment’s aban­don­ment of lo­cal gov­ern­ment re­form and the un­pop­u­lar amal­ga­ma­tion pro­posal for Vic­to­ria Park and neigh­bour­ing City of South Perth.

The Town’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Per­for­mance Re­view Com­mit­tee is now also re­spon­si­ble for re­cruit­ment of the po­si­tion with ad­ver­tis­ing start­ing in two to three weeks.

Mem­bers of the com­mit­tee, which has al­ready com­pleted Mr Vuleta’s per­for­mance re­view, are Mayor Trevor Vaughan, Deputy Mayor Claire An­der­son (or Cr Vince Maxwell in Cr An­der­son’s ab­sence) and Cr Brian Oliver.

Mr Vuleta, who re­ceived a $30,000 pay rise in the 2013-14 fi­nan­cial year tak­ing his earn­ings to within the $240,000-$249,000 salary band, is el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply for the per­ma­nent po­si­tion.

His pay rise was a de­ci­sion car­ried unan­i­mously by Vic­to­ria Park coun­cil­lors.

Act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive An­thony Vuleta.
