Organisational Reform to Strengthen City services
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.
