“I am very ex­cited on tak­ing this new op­por­tu­nity and I look for­ward to work­ing with the team at the coun­cil, the spe­cial ad­min­is­tra­tors and the com­mu­nity at large for the fu­ture de­vel­op­ments in Ba Town,” she said.

She plans to meet key part­ners to de­vise solid fu­ture plans for the coun­cil.

“The plan is to en­gage stake­hold­ers, staff of the coun­cil and spe­cial ad­min­is­tra­tors on the strate­gic vi­sion de­vel­op­ment for the town and also to pro­mote pub­lic in­volve­ment in mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s ac­tiv­i­ties,” she said.

Her employment, is on a con­tract ba­sis, how­ever, she plans to cul­ti­vate key part­ner­ships.

“We will be call­ing for a stake­holder meet­ing in the com­ing days to dis­cuss how we can work on im­prov­ing the ser­vices. There are lots of plans for the town, which we will en­gage the stake­hold­ers so to­gether we can de­liver com­mu­nity ex­pec­ta­tions with in­no­va­tive de­vel­op­ments,” she said.
