The post of Secretary for WURA is vacant now that Richard Russell has retired from the position. The post could be ideal for a retired person as the work requires working a varying number of hours per day dealing with road matters and associated issues but equally could suit anyone who feels able to fully commit to the work involved. The job, which tends to be event driven, involves responding to multiple emails from not just residents but developers, builders, utilities and various Council departments some of whom are not particularly responsive or helpful as well as organising meetings and keeping minutes. There is an honorarium which I must admit does not reflect the work involved. However whilst it is a challenging role it is also rewarding in terms of the opportunity to be of real service to the community here.
It would be an advantage for the applicant to be well established in the area with contacts within the community and be of a friendly disposition plus plenty of patience!
If you are interested and would like more information please email WURA or telephone myself directly (contact information in the newsletter).
Colin Brown (Chairman)
