I'd like to welcome Ben Dornier to the position of acting Chief Executive Officer of Litchfield Council, following the departure of previous CEO Iian Wilson on 11 May. Ben has extensive experience in local government, as the Director of Corporate and Community Services for City of Palmerston. Recruitment for a permanent CEO will soon get underway, with the final decision to be made when an elected council is back in place. My ongoing investigation into the council is continuing, and I am on track to provide my final recommendation and report to the Minister by 30 June.
