The Region's General Managers are heading to Sydney this week to put their case forward for the position of interim general manager for a merged South-East council.
Staff at Snowy River Shire Council have been advised the federal government wants to finish the fit for the future reform process as soon as possible- out of the way by the time the federal election rolls around.
Mayor John Cahill says the composition of the new local government has yet to be confirmed but the position of general manager could be known fairly soon.
"Snowy River's General Manager is in Sydney for an interview on Friday among many other general managers looking for the position of interim general manager. I wish him well for that. And of course, many councillors have applied to continue on, and there's no news yet on just how that issue it will be decided yet," he said.
Councillor Cahill says the sooner its all over, the sooner they can start focusing on the provision of services to the local community.
"The sooner the better. I mean we've been dealing with this thing for about 4 years. It's about time they wound it all up. There's many people saying we wish it would happen- hurry up and get on with it- and I think that's the situation the council is in at the moment- we want to know the way forward and have all these issues resolved," he said.
