The process to review Clarence Valley Council’s general manager Scott Greensill’s performance over the past 12 months commenced at last week’s council meeting.
During a 40-minute confidential session, councillors resolved to review the GM’s performance agreement “under the terms of the guidelines for the appointment and oversight of general managers issued by the Office of Local Government [OLG] July 2011”.
A general manager’s performance agreement must be reviewed at least once annually; however, the OLG document states that “the governing body of council may also undertake interim performance reviews as appropriate”.
Councillors, apart from Cr Jason Kingsley (Cr Arthur Lysaught was absent), resolved to “seek agreement with the General Manager for the General Manager’s performance review to be undertaken … [with] one Councillor (other than the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, and General Manager’s nominee), [who] will be appointed to the Performance Review Committee as requested by the General Manager and one Councillor [who] will be nominated by the General Manager”.
Councillors appointed Cr Peter Ellem to the committee.
The general manager’s nominee was unknown at the time of writing.
Councillors also resolved that “if agreement is not reached [with the general manager, regarding the councillors’ selection] then the matter be reported to Council”.
