FOUR senior executives have left the Isaac Regional Council for various reasons, but the organisation is adamant service delivery to residents is assured.

Of the six positions, just two executive directors remain at the IRC after the governance and community services, corporate services, technical and civil services, and financial services heads resigned.

A mix of retirement, promotional opportunities and personal choice factors are understood to be the various reasons for the departure of the senior executives.

But the IRC has been quick to assure residents service delivery remains a priority and achievable by the remaining executives, and a new structure will be introduced to meet the demands of the region.

"The proposed future structure of the council was laid on the table to seek further information," a spokeswoman said.

"However, temporary arrangements are in place to cover the current senior executive vacancies and all operational needs are being met under these arrangements.

"It is the intention of the council to address the proposed structure at its earliest convenience once all operational needs are clarified and the best structure is developed to support the ongoing direction of the council."

The position of deputy mayor is also understood to be up for grabs by various councillors who must submit an expression of interest to Mayor Anne Baker.
