Chief role made permanent
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.
