The new chief executive of Tauranga City Council is proposing to realign council’s leadership team.

“Over the past three months, I’ve had opportunities to speak with and seek the views of internal and external stakeholders about the priorities, role and performance of Council," says Marty.
“Almost everyone agrees that managing our city’s rapid growth, improving our transport networks and ensuring we have well-oiled processes to support housing development need to be our priorities.
“Another constant theme has been to ensure the organisation is well positioned, resourced and led to deliver the core services needed for our city.
“With all of the above in mind, I have developed an executive and leadership change proposal," says Marty.

"I have asked the council team to provide me with feedback about this proposal by 21 December.

"I will finalise the plan and look to implement it by the end of January.”

Every time a new boss moves into a "public service job" there MUST be a immediate re-structuring otherwise he (or she) is not doing their job!! Sorry, two weeks in the job and thy know whats’s wrong with the organisation - I THINK NOT !!!!

I certainly agree with nerak......

....if it is possible to get some new direction with new leadership then all power to you Marty.,..I do believe us ratepayers genuinely need something to believe in within TCC after the last ’regime’ of luck.

Sounds interesting,
