Dyne urges productivity, efficiency
MAYOR Ron Dyne said this week most of the Gympie Regional Council's 480 staff live and work in the Gympie region.
"Council and its staff are very much in the public eye, so productivity and efficiency are essential, now more than ever in the corporate environment," he said.
As part of the council's focus on streamlining its operations, the budget will fund upgraded computer links to Kilkivan from 3mb/s to 50mb/s and to upgrade the John St depot link from 20mb/s to 100mb/s.
"This will help centralise council's data for security and disaster recovery and increase productivity in regional localities," he said.
"A further initiative being implemented is the electronic business papers system which streamlines the processes used by council to prepare and distribute meeting agendas and minutes."
