Busi­ness head gets Subi com­mit­tee gig

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

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”.
