DAINTREE resident Linda Cardew will officially become the new chief executive officer for the Douglas Shire Council on March 10.
With more than 20 years’ experience across all levels of government, Ms Cardew said she was “extremely excited” by the appointment.
“Financial sustainability is and will continue to be a priority. The budget is lean and we need to work with it to deliver value for money and an understanding on how to deliver services efficiently. Without a financial platform, other things cannot be achieved,” she said.
