As Chair Administrator of the City of Whittlesea, I would like to acknowledge the significant contribution made to our community during the past six months by Administrator The Hon Bruce Billson, following his resignation.
Bruce is leaving us to take up a very important national role as Small Business Ombudsman for the Australian Government.
During his time as a member of the Panel of Administrators, Bruce has worked alongside Administrator Peita Duncan and myself supporting our Executive and staff to deliver a range of service and governance improvements, support our community through COVID-19, and embark on a significant consultation to develop a new Council Plan.
Please be assured that Administrator Duncan and I remain fully committed to our work and the roadmap we have set for the future of the City of Whittlesea, including an ambitious outcome-focused program for the remainder of our term.
We are looking forward to the Victorian Government announcing a replacement Administrator for the City of Whittlesea in due course.
