George Town general manager John Martin has resigned.

The announcement was made by mayor Bridget Archer on Thursday after the council’s May meeting on Wednesday night.

Ms Archer thanked Mr Martin for his contribution to the role for the past two-and-a-half years.

“I am pleased to have been able to assist council in setting their new strategic plan with the community and to have contributed to building positive strategic foundations for future economic and social growth,” Mr Martin said.

“We have been able to identify and attract significant government funding for various projects including major road infrastructure and the waste transfer station.”

Mr Martin said he had enjoyed working with the mayor, councillors and the community during his tenure at the council.

Ms Archer said Mar Martin intends to take a break with his family before pursuing other interests.

“He has decided to pursue other interests,” she said.

Mr Martin said he was proud to have been able to benefit the council during his tenure as its general manager

“The efforts of our staff contribute significantly to the George Town community given the limited resources available to a small council,” he said.

“The George Town area has some wonderful opportunities ahead and I wish the Council the best in progressing these positively with the community into the future.”

The departure is effective from May 5. Raoul Harper has been appointed acting general manager.

A recruitment process is expected to take place soon.
