Bega Valley Shire Councilors have approved a new senior management structure for the organisation, which will see it better able to meet its current and future financial constraints.
At the meeting yesterday, Councillors approved a senior structure of three main directorates, each headed up by a Director. All three directorates will report to the General Manager.
Following recent resignations and retirements, the option to reconsider restructuring was embraced, providing an opportunity to review the organisations effectiveness, and look for ways to work better together for the community.
Council currently operates in a ‘no above rate pegging increase’ environment, and it is essential that the organisation continually review its structure to ensure alignment with the Delivery Plan, but also so it can manage itself within its budget parameters.
The General Manager and senior management team will now work with staff over the coming months to design how the rest of the organisation will work under the three directorates, making sure that the financial and resourcing requirements are met.
While no positions will be lost, there is the potential for a number of changes and realignment of functions. Council will continue to provide support to affected employees through the change process.
