Tenterfield Shire Council mayor Peter Petty has quashed a rumour which surfaced this week that the council’s general manager Damien Connor had left his role.
Cr Petty told the Free Times today, Thursday 18 May, that Mr Connor was currently on annual leave and was entitled to four weeks off every year.
The rumour followed a confidential Extraordinary General Meeting of Tenterfield Council last Thursday, 11 May.
The agenda contained a sole notice of motion entitled ‘Management matters relating to senior staff appointments’, with the meeting closed to the public and media as it involved “personnel matters concerning particular individuals”.
Cr Petty said the meeting dealt with a “structural change” with the council’s staffing but would not elaborate, other than to say that one “new appointment” had commenced and a second would commence shortly.
The minutes of the meeting are not currently available online.
Two senior management vacancies – Asset and Project Planning and Governance and Information – have been advertised in local media this week.
Mr Connor was last week appointed to the board of directors of NSW Local Government Professionals.
