Future plan for FCO at meeting on Tuesday night

MAYOR and Fraser Coast Opportunities chairman Gerard O'Connell is reluctant to speculate on changes that may come from the tourism and economic development body's general meeting on Tuesday night.

The meeting is unlikely to end speculation about the future of the entity, however disgruntled councillors will have the opportunity to ask questions of FCO general manager David Spear.

Speaking to the Chronicle ahead of the closed meeting, Cr O'Connell said he expected future plans and strategic directions to be endorsed.

And after having interim board members since the shock resignations of David Hay, Glen Winney and Theresa Craig in July, new board members will be voted in.

A motion to increase the board to a maximum of nine members will also come forward.

"Election of new board members is also an item to be voted on by the members (the 11 councillors)," Cr O'Connell said.

The three additional positions will be filled by councillors, however exactly who will fill those positions won't be finalised on Tuesday night.

Councillors Darren Everard and Chris Loft have expressed interest in those positions.
