New council chief has rebuilt councils, says Crouch
The new Central Coast Council chief executive Mr David Farmer "has a record of rebuilding dysfunctional councils", according to Member for Terrigal Mr Adam Crouch.
"Each of his past three roles have involved major financial or governance situations.
"He has served as chief executive of Ipswich and Wollongong Councils, both of which were in administration and eventually saw the return of councillors.
"He has also served as chief executive of Cairns Council, where he spent five years rebuilding the organisation from a poor financial situation related to a failed information technology system."
Mr Crouch said Mr Farmer was "an accountant by profession".
