Outgoing chief asked for honest assessment
SUBIACO’S outgoing acting chief executive Ian Hill will write a “frank and honest” assessment of council operations before new chief executive Don Burnett arrives in early October.
At the council meeting last month, Councillor Paul Clements said his approved elected member’s motion asked Mr Hill to “tell us exactly what he thinks on his way out the door”.
The report would include suggested modifications to the admin structure and an overview of City services, including the implications of losing the south ward to the City of Perth Act.
“We have made substantial changes in management over the last few months,” Cr Clements said.
“This is an opportunity for Mr Hill to have a good hard look at our operations and come back with some suggestions.”
Cr Julie Matheson said Mr Hill had been a fantastic advocate for the Subiaco Council.
“He has really sped up some things that have held us back,” Cr Matheson said.
“It will be a frank and honest point of view of this council.”
Cr Clements said he was wary of the elected member’s motion.
“I’m cautious of an outgoing CEO stepping on the toes of an incoming CEO,” he said.
