Business head gets Subi committee gig
WESTERN Suburbs Business Association (WSBA) president Geoff Parnell was appointed to the City of Subiaco’s Economic and Business Sustainability Advisory committee last week.
However, Councillor Lynley Hewett said the City should “use the deputy we have”, as the WSBA changed its name from the Subiaco Business Association (SBA) in December last year.
“The SBA changed its name to pre-empt local government reform, so it seems we should now tidy up our terms of refer- ence,” Cr Hewett said.
Cr Murray Rowe said there was “no better qualified person” for the position than Mr Parnell.
“The name change is academic, they still have their offices down the road,” Cr Rowe said, calling Parnell “top of the tree”.
