TWO senior members of staff have parted company with the Derwent Valley Council in recent weeks.
A note in the agenda documents for last week’s council meeting mentioned the departure of corporate and community services manager Mark Eady on April 18. It is reported he will take up the position of finance and corporate services director at the Yass Valley Council in New South Wales.
Mr Eady was effectively the second-in-charge of the council administration, standing in as acting general manager when necessary. He started at the council in August 2017 with previous experience at the City of Sydney Council and the NSW Independent Commission against Corruption.
The council has advertised the position of revenue officer following the departure of Spencer Cannell who had been appointed to that role last year. Mr Cannell won praise from councillors for his success rate in recovering overdue rates payments.
The council has recently appointed an operations manager to work with infrastructure and development services manager Richard Blackwell, and it has advertised the new position of contracts and projects officer.
