THE City of Armadale has decided to part ways with chief executive Ray Tame.

With his contract scheduled to end on June 27, 2019, Mr Tame told the chief executive officer review panel last year that he would be asking for a two to three year contract extension to allow key local projects to finish under his tenure.

A two hour discussion at last week’s council meeting led to councillors agreeing a longer-term chief executive was preferred and a decision was made that the City should advertise the position.

A spokesperson said the City recognised Mr Tame’s service to the City over 21 years and conceded he would be hard to replace.
