Councillor Maff to resign
Council announced today that Cr Brett Maff has officially resigned from his role as Councillor, effective 21 March 2018, after the next General Meeting of Council.
Mayor Liz Schmidt explained increasing business commitments had led to the difficult decision. “Cr Maff has been a tremendous asset to Council and the region. He feels with his ever-increasing work commitments he cannot give the same level of contribution he has over the past two years and feels it’s best to resign.
Cr Maff’s business and financial background has assisted me and the other Councillors provide financial sustainability to Council and he has been an integral part of the Audit Committee.” said the Mayor.
Cr Maff was elected in March 2016 and in that time his portfolio has included finance, sport and recreation and regional economic development. Cr Maff is also Chair of the Internal Audit Committee.
“I am grateful to the residents of Charters Towers for giving me the opportunity to represent their interests and to assist in progressing our region.” said Cr Brett Maff
Mayor Liz Schmidt said “As a Council, we will continue to move forward with planned works and infrastructure upgrades and the tasks we have set ourselves to do.
On behalf of Council, I wish Cr Maff all the best in his future endeavours.”
The Queensland Electoral Commission will be notified and a replacement will be determined through a by-election in the coming months.
