But­ler leaves coun­cil

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ROBERT MUIR

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil’s Di­rec­tor Plan­ning and En­vi­ron­ment Adrian But­ler ceased duty with coun­cil last Fri­day, May 26.

Mr But­ler, 42, was the Gen­eral Man­ager of Urana Shire Coun­cil im­me­di­ately prior to its amal­ga­ma­tion with Corowa Shire Coun­cil to be­come Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil on May 12, 2016.

Upon amal­ga­ma­tion, he be­came act­ing Di­rec­tor Plan­ning and In­fras­truc­ture and was cho­sen for the po­si­tion’s per­ma­nent fill­ing when all po­si­tions in the new Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil or­gan­i­sa­tion struc­ture were filled between last De­cem­ber and Fe­bru­ary.

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil Ad­min­is­tra­tor Mike Eden is­sued a press re­lease say­ing coun­cil and Mr But­ler had agreed his em­ploy­ment with coun­cil would end due to a re­dun­dancy pack­age.

“Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil wishes Mr But­ler all the best in his en­deav­ours. Mr But­ler has been a great con­trib­u­tor to the suc­cess­ful merger between Urana Shire Coun­cil and Corowa Shire Coun­cil and he will be greatly missed,” the state­ment adds.

In a farewell email sent by Mr But­ler to his col­leagues at Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil and pro­vided to the Free Press he said, “thanks so much for mak­ing me wel­come at the Corowa end and thanks to the north­ern end for all your help as well”.

“It felt very ac­cept­ing walk­ing into the Corowa of­fice and de­pot and that says a lot about all of you,” Mr But­ler wrote.

“All the very best with Fed­er­a­tion, it’s a great busi­ness go­ing from strength to strength.”
