BOMBALA Councillors and staff farewelled one of Council’s long serving staff members, Daryl White on August 15, hosting a retirement dinner at the Heritage in July.
The dinner and formal Council presentation was attended by Councillors, staff and members of Daryl’s family, including his wife, Nola.
Daryl was presented with a motorised, remote control golf buggy of which he was very appreciative, and Council has heard since that he has mastered the controls!
Mayor Bob Stewart read the following citation for Daryl –
“Daryl commenced work with Bombala Shire Council on October 4, 1977 as the Pay Master Cost Clerk.
He was the first person employed by the then newly established Bombala Shire Council, which had been formed from the amalgamation of Bibbenluke Shire Council and Bombala Municipal Council in September 1977.
Daryl decided to give another job a go for a few years and resigned from Council in 1983. However, he returned to his position as the Pay Master Cost Clerk in 1989 and stayed in that position until his retirement on July 6, 2012.
Daryl was always a very conscientious employee. Even during bouts of illness, he would often call in to make sure that the large jobs, such as registering the plant fleet, were completed on time and up to date.
He was always extremely helpful when asked questions concerning leave entitlements and which creditor was paid what and when. He could often work calculations out in his head which others needed a calculator for.
During his time with Council, Daryl saw the renaming of Bombala Shire Council to Bombala Council in 1993.
He worked with a number of people in the Finance area including Jill Hampshire, Allan McDonald, Ross Fleming, Ray Cootes and Karen Guthrie.
Also a number of General Managers, including Lance Stuckey, Tony Tassell, Ken Croskell, Nick Machan, David Rawlings and Don Cottee.
Daryl, I would like to thank you for your 29 years of dedicated and loyal service to Council. I know that you will pursue your love of golf and I take this opportunity to wish you well in your retirement and for the future.”
Councillors Joe Ingram, Steve Goodyer, Angie Ingram and Bob Stewart joined GM Don Cottee in wishing Nola and Daryl White all of the best for the future as Daryl retired from Council recently.
