New members for Governance and Finance Reference Group

Council is very pleased to welcome three new members to its Governance and Finance Reference Group in 2017.

Michael Dowling, Andrew Rogers and Andrew Sutherland will join existing Governance and Finance Reference Group members Felicity Thyer, James Tippet, David Kenwood, Terry Philp, Andrew Conlan, John Johnson and Mark Hoysted and nominated Council representatives, Councillor Susan Salter and Councillor Bob Merriman.

“We are looking forward to working with the new Governance and Finance Reference Group to enhance our planning framework,” said Borough of Queenscliffe Mayor, Councillor Tony Francis.

The purpose of the Governance and Finance Reference Group is to support Council by providing information and feedback on Council’s annual Implementation Plan and Budget.

Council conducted an expression of interest process in June 2017 to request applications from appropriately qualified members of the Borough community. The expression of interest process closed on 22 June.

Requests for expressions of interest for membership of Council reference groups are advertised on Council’s website, www.queenscliffe.vic.gov.au, and in local publications.
