Colac Otway Shire Council will have a temporary chief executive after next week, with councillors appointing Robert Dobrzynski to the role.
Sue Wilkinson resigned as the council’s chief executive officer last month and councillors voted this week to appoint Mr Dobrzynski as the acting CEO.
Mr Dobrzynski will start as the acting CEO on September 4 with Ms Wilkinson’s last day on September 1.
The acting CEO has three decades of experience working in local government and has most recently worked as the CEO of Launceston City Council.
Mayor Chris Potter said Mr Dobrzynski had also previously served as CEO of the Moorabool Shire Council, Delatite Shire Council and West Wimmera Shire Council.
“The recruitment of a new permanent CEO is one of the most important tasks our council will undertake during our term,” Cr Potter said.
