What a confused Council we seem to have on the Central Coast (Vote of no confidence in missing CEO withdrawn; October 16).
If Council, like any Board that employs a CEO, thinks he is not performing, there is a process for either improving performance, or in the worst case, termination.
Grandstanding with a vote of no confidence is a coward’s way of dealing with the issue.
It’s also embarrassing for the CEO who may not be the problem; certainly not at the Central Coast Council where I think there are bigger fish to fry.
Implementing a Finance Committee would seem a no-brainer; but why now; why hasn’t it been in place well before this; it’s a governance tool and most reputable boards have one.
The problem with CCC is not the CEO.
Remember the fish rots from the head.
Where are you Mayor….and councillors; the buck stops with you!
