QDLC working out promised new liaison role [ODT, 9/11/19]
Options for the role of the Queenstown Lakes District Council Wanaka manager are still being considered but the appointment “will be progressed quite quickly”, the council says.
Mayor Jim Boult promised a new council staff liaison or manager position would be created in Wanaka as he continued his campaign for re-election.
This week, council media and channels adviser Jack Barlow confirmed there were “currently no timelines, reporting line or role title to advise of, but council will be advertising the role once details are confirmed”.
Wanaka Community Board chairman Barry Bruce said there was a Wanaka council manager years ago and it worked very well.
