Or­gan­i­sa­tional Re­form to Strengthen City ser­vices

Western Suburbs Weekly - - City of perth news -

The City of Perth will un­dergo ma­jor or­gan­i­sa­tional change in the new fi­nan­cial year, in line with con­sid­er­able growth and re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion of the CBD. Coun­cil has en­dorsed a new or­gan­i­sa­tional struc­ture that will en­able the City of Perth to drive growth and in­no­va­tion to shape a stronger cap­i­tal city. City of Perth Lord Mayor Lisa Scaf­fidi said there would be an in­creased fo­cus on en­hanc­ing cus­tomer ser­vice as well as devel­op­ment within the city. “The City’s ur­ban land­scape is trans­form­ing at a fast pace as ma­jor devel­op­ment projects such as City Link and El­iz­a­beth Quay—which is ex­pected to at­tract four-mil­lion vis­i­tors each year—come on line,” Ms Scaf­fidi said. The Lord Mayor said the city’s po­lit­i­cal land­scape was also set for ma­jor trans­for­ma­tion with the in­tro­duc­tion of the City of Perth Act to State Par­lia­ment. “Leg­is­la­tion will al­low for ex­pan­sion of the City of Perth’s bound­aries to in­clude Kings Park, the Uni­ver­sity of WA and the QEII med­i­cal cen­tre site,” Ms Scaf­fidi said. “The Act is about strength­en­ing the role of Perth as a cap­i­tal city for the ben­e­fit of the en­tire state.” Ms Scaf­fidi said or­gan­i­sa­tional change at the City would fur­ther im­prove ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties in a stronger cap­i­tal city.
