Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY NEWS AND VIEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Re­gional Coun­cil Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Scott Wa­ters has been reap­pointed to the Mackay-Isaac-Whit­sun­day Re­gional Devel­op­ment Australia Com­mit­tee. Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil Mayor Jenny Whit­ney said the CEO’s reap­point­ment was re­quested by the Deputy Prime Min­is­ter, the Hon War­ren Truss MP and is for an 18 month pe­riod, end­ing in Au­gust 2016.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity for both the CEO and Coun­cil, as our con­tin­ued rep­re­sen­ta­tion on the lo­cal RDA com­mit­tee guar­an­tees an ac­tive voice in ad­vo­cat­ing the Whit­sun­day re­gions’ pri­or­i­ties,” she said. “It is also a good way of work­ing to­gether to strengthen re­gional eco­nomic devel­op­ment in the broader Mackay-Isaac-Whit­sun­day re­gion. “The RDA Mackay-Isaac-Whit­sun­day com­mit­tee’s vi­sion is life­style, op­por­tu­nity and pros­per­ity which was es­tab­lished through ex­ten­sive en­gage­ment with the com­mu­nity, peak bod­ies and three tiers of Gov­ern­ment to map out a path­way for­ward for the re­gion,” she said.

In Queens­land, there are 12 RDA com­mit­tees that are work­ing to de­velop lo­cal so­lu­tions to the eco­nomic, so­cial and en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues af­fect­ing their com­mu­ni­ties.

AD­VO­CATE: Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil CEO Scott Wa­ters has been re-ap­pointed to the Re­gional Devel­op­ment Australia (RDA) Com­mit­tee Mackay-Isaac-Whit­sun­day.
