REAPPOINTED: Gympie Regional Council CEO Bernard Smith

CEO contract move lapses

 MOVE to have Gympie Regional Council revisit its re-appointment of CEO Bernard Smith for another five years, lapsed for want of a seconder at Wednesday's council meeting.

The motion was put forward by Cr Ian Petersen, who had argued that another five-year contract was inappropriate with a council election due in March.

He had called for a temporary extension, so the new council could make its own decision on who to appoint as CEO.
