Hilltops Council have started the search for a new general manager following the resignation of current general manager Dr Edwina Marks.
Dr Marks said, “I can confirm that I have advised Council of my intention to resign from my role as General Manager of Hilltops Council and will be leaving in early 2020. This will allow Council and I to ensure that relevant projects are underway or completed running up to the next term of Council.”
“I have enjoyed my time with Hilltops Council and as General Manager have relished the role given to me. I believe that the Council and I have achieved a lot through this difficult time as a newly merged Council. I will always hold close the time I have spent in this beautiful part of the world and the many wonderful people I have met.”
Mayor Ingram outlined the selection process the Council will follow, “We are currently in the process of selecting an agency to facilitate the recruitment of a new General Manager. Suitable applicants will be reviewed by an Application Review Panel consisting of the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Councillors Roles, Horton and Armstrong as well as a member of the recruitment agency. A General Manager will then be selected by the General Manager Selection Panel which consists of all Councillors.”
