CY­CLONE Deb­bie has re­sulted in some changes to the Whit­sun­day Busi­ness Cen­tre.

Due to dam­age sus­tained at the Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil of­fice in Proser­pine, some coun­cil em­ploy­ees are now based at the busi­ness cen­tre at 230 Shute Har­bour Rd, Can­non­vale.

A coun­cil spokesper­son said staff would be based at the busi­ness cen­tre tem­po­rar­ily.

“For staff that could not be re­lo­cated within Proser­pine at such short no­tice, coun­cil has en­tered into a six-month lease for floor space in the Whit­sun­day busi­ness cen­tre to ac­com­mo­date the fol­low­ing work groups pre­vi­ously lo­cated in the Proser­pine administration build­ing,” the spokesper­son said.

Coun­cil staff within plan­ning and devel­op­ment, build­ing and plumb­ing, com­mu­nity and ■ ■ en­vi­ron­ment ser­vices and cor­po­rate ser­vices are among those re­lo­cated.

Whit­sun­day Mayor An­drew Will­cox and CEO Barry Omud­son are op­er­at­ing from tem­po­rary space in Proser­pine while other coun­cil em­ploy­ees and staff were re­lo­cated to the Proser­pine De­pot and Proser­pine Wa­ter Treat­ment Plant.

PRD­na­tion­wide also re­lo­cated in light of cy­clone dam­age.

They have now moved from Shop 1 to Suite 9 and are trad­ing with nor­mal op­er­at­ing hours.
