Council Connect - Issue 6


Most of the articles here originate from our inaugural Local Council Managers & Officers Forum in September, held in Parramatta.

This year's theme, Operating in the Public Eye, clearly resonated with delegates.  Operating in the public eye places unique demands on councils.  It means greater scrutiny is placed on decisions and challenges - whether legal or in the court of public opinion - are more likely than in the commercial arena.

In this issue we explore these challenges and how councils can meet them.  We've also included an interview with Steven Head, General Manager of Hornsby Shire Council.  Steven's perspective rounds out an invaluable overview of today's landscape for any organisation in the public eye.
