Bassendean Briefings - No. 120

CEO’s resignation AFTER MORE than nine years as the CEO of the Town of Bassendean, Bob Jarvis has advised the Council that he does not wish to extend his contract beyond the expiry date of January 2019. Mr Jarvis said that he has appreciated the opportunity to serve the Town over the last nine years, during which time many changes have occurred that have reshaped the Town Centre and provided significant new infrastructure across the Town—with plans in place for further change in the next few years. Mr Jarvis thanked the Councillors and staff, both past and present, for their support and wished the Town every success in the future.
