7            Announcements by the Presiding Member (Without Disussion)

Presiding Member Deputy Mayor Susan Gontaszewski made the following announcements:

 

7.1          Greening Vincent Garden Competition

The Greening Vincent Gardening Competition which has been running since Vincent became Vincent is on again this year. Entries are open to residents, ratepayers and businesses with property in Vincent and there are a number of categories; best business garden, catchment friendly verge, food garden, court yard, balcony and residential gardens. It is such a fantastic event to be part of and I would urge all the green thumbs out there to head to our website and find out more and submit their entry by 5 October. 


 

7.2          Final Council Meeting for Chief Executive Officer

I would like to acknowledge that tonight is the final Council Meeting for our outgoing CEO, Len Kosova. Len, your achievements in the role speak for themselves and the change that you have led at Vincent has benefited both our City and the Local Government Sector. You have my absolute congratulations for being someone who both challenges and changes the status quo. It has been such a great pleasure working with you and I wish you all the very best as you step away to spend more time with family and explore other career opportunities. So on behalf of Council I thank you.

 

Vincent will be welcoming David MacLennan who will be taking the post as Chief Executive Officer. David brings along a passion for people along with a substantive public sector leadership, project management and infrastructure management experience to the role of CEO. David will be commencing in October and we look forward to welcoming him then and continuing to deliver progressive, innovative, open and accountable Local Government.

 

The Presiding Member Deputy Mayor Susan Gontaszewski invited Chief Executive Officer, Len Kosova to say some words to mark the occasion.    

 

It has been a real privilege to serve the community of the City of Vincent and it has been fabulous working with this Council and this Administration. The CEO is often responsible for taking more than their fair share of the blame and less than their fair share of the credit and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I would just like the thank the whole of the Administration for all of the support, encouragement and motivation they have shown while we have been on a very progressive change journey over the last four years.

 

Thank you also and specifically to the Executive Team, it has been a great privilege serving with all of the Directors in investing an enormous amount of time and energy in always trying to do right by the community of the City of Vincent. It has been the one purpose and passion that I am pleased to say the whole organisation has shared, as we have focussed on a narrative of “Us and We” rather than “I and Me”.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to be Vincent’s CEO. After 23 years in Local Government I am now looking forward to pursuing new opportunities.

      

8            Declarations of Interest
