Cator has resigned
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.

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.
