The Tatura Guardian - - News - Con­tin­ued from page 1

Mr Cator has been with coun­cil for the past 31⁄ years

2 since start­ing in the role in Jan­uary 2012.

Dur­ing his time at coun­cil he has led it through a sig­nif­i­cant or­gan­i­sa­tional and cul­tural re­view, which has re­sulted in ef­fi­ciency gains and a ma­jor im­prove­ment of the ser­vice de­liv­ery to the com­mu­nity.

Upon tak­ing up the role, Mr Cator was tasked to un­der­take this re­view and he has guided a large or­gan­i­sa­tional change process with staff in­volve­ment and con­sul­ta­tion.

Dur­ing his time at coun­cil there has been an im­prove­ment in com­mu­nity sat­is­fac­tion as could be seen in the 2014 state-wide sur­vey.

His other achieve­ments in­clude an im­proved op­er­a­tional bud­get po­si­tion, the re­view of the rat­ing struc­ture, im­prove­ment to coun­cil’s Com­mu­nity En­gage­ment and Com­mu­nity Plan­ning Pro­grams, im­prove­ment to the com­ple­tion of coun­cil’s Capi- tal Works Pro­gram, the in­tro­duc­tion of new or­gan­i­sa­tional struc­tures to gain ac­count­abil­ity and ef­fi­cien­cies, the in­tro­duc­tion of an ac­count­abil­ity frame­work for se­nior lead­ers and staff in the or­gan­i­sa­tion, the in­tro­duc­tion of mea­sures to im­prove coun­cil’s en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity by re­duc­ing its car­bon foot­print, re­view of all coun­cil poli­cies, im­prove­ment to the bud­get doc­u­men­ta­tion to en­sure its trans­parency, im­prove­ment to the sys­tems within the or­gan­i­sa­tion, and im­prove­ments to the agenda pa­pers pre­sented to Or­di­nary Coun­cil Meet­ings.

Coun­cil thanked Mr Cator for his hard work and ded­i­ca­tion to the job dur­ing the past 31⁄ years, and wished him

2 well in the fu­ture.

His last day with coun­cil will be July 3, and, in the mean­time, coun­cil will begin the process to ap­point an act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer prior to the search for a per­ma­nent re­place­ment.
