Coun­cil in hunt to keep CEO

Wanneroo Times - - News -

JOON­DALUP chief ex­ec­u­tive Garry Hunt has been of­fered a new em­ploy­ment con­tract but his salary will re­main the same.

Go­ing be­hind closed doors at last month’s meet­ing, coun­cil­lors voted 11-1 to re­new Mr Hunt’s con­tract un­til July 31, 2020, un­der the same terms and con­di­tions as the cur­rent con­tract.

If Mr Hunt (pic­tured) ac­cepts the of­fer, an­other re­port will be sub­mit­ted to the coun­cil to con­sider en­ter­ing into the new con­tract, in line with the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Act.

As part of the agenda item, coun­cil­lors also re­ceived an an­nual per­for­mance re­view on Mr Hunt and en­dorsed the over­all rat­ing of “per­form­ing at an ex­tremely high level”. Cr Rus­sell Poli­wka voted against the mo­tion.

Coun­cil­lors then re­mained in the con­fi­den­tial ses­sion to con­sider Mr Hunt’s an­nual salary re­view. They unan­i­mously sup­ported keep­ing the salary at $375,774.
