Message from Mayor Ben Keneally

New Directors on board

Last week Council welcomed two new Directors to its management team. Mrs Heather Warton has been appointed as Director City Planning and Environment and Mr Stuart Dutton has been appointed as Director City Infrastructure. Both bring a fresh new approach and a wealth of knowledge in their areas of expertise. Mrs Warton takes over from Rodger Dowsett who retired from his position as Director of Planning and Operations. Rodger had served the Council and the City of Botany Bay for over 40 years, beginning as a health and building surveyor when he was just 21. On behalf of the Councillors and Council staff I wish Rodger and his wife Deborah a long and happy retirement.
