The three Commissioners appointed to the City of Perth have been formally introduced by the Minister of Local Government and Communities, the Honourable David Templeman.

Chair of Commissioners Eric Lumsden, and Commissioners Gaye McMath and Andrew Hammond have outlined their plans for good governance at the City, and to return confidence to the ratepayers and wider community.

CEO Martin Mileham said that the appointment of the Commissioners is a much needed circuit breaker for the City’s ratepayers, community and over 760 hard working men and women at the City.

“I have already met with all three Commissioners, and together we are committed to an open and transparent course of action to restore confidence within the City,” Mr Mileham said.

“I acknowledge it has been a very challenging period for employees, but I am confident the appointment of the Commissioners will bring positive outcomes for the City.

“As announced by Mr Lumsden, this will start next Thursday at the special Council Meeting.”

During the appointment of the Commissioners, the City will continue to provide quality services to ratepayers, stakeholders and the community.
