This month sees the first instalment of what we hope will be a regular article - All in the Line of Duty!
We would love to see the lighter, funnier side of our member Council executive staff and Mayors, and so encourage their assistants to contact us with any photographs or stories.
We kick off September with a photograph of Cairns Regional Council CEO Peter Tabulo during a recent fundraiser for Angel Flight. Peter issued a challenge to Council's 400-plus Spence Street staff: dig deep for the charity and he would serve a sausage sizzle dressed in angel attire...and he did!
Angel Flight is a charity which coordinates non-emergency flights to help people in remote areas who need to travel extensive distances to reach medical services. All flights are free and rely on the generosity of pilots who give their time and aircraft to carry patients to their destinations.
Local Government Management Australia (LGMA) threw its support behind Angel Flight's campaign to visit 44 towns in 42 council areas (including Tablelands Regional Council) over 17 days in a Foxbat aircraft.
