Noosa split talks move to library and waste services
COUNCIL library staff will soon find out soon how the de-amalgamation of Noosa from the Sunshine Coast Council will affect them.
The division of assets and responsibilities between the Sunshine Coast and Noosa councils has moved on to discussions about library and waste services, and planning applications.
A Sunshine Coast Council spokesman confirmed yesterday that options for the library service operations
after Noosa officially de-amalgamated on January 1 had been considered.
"Council will now advise the Noosa transfer manager of its decision before engaging with library staff and members to advise of any changes," the spokesman said.
Staff members are expected to learn of the library service's future within weeks.
The transfer of 425 full-time staff positions from the Sunshine Coast to the new Noosa council was announced this week.
Noosa transfer manager Peter Franks has started work on the organisational structure.
He will make recommendations to the incoming council after January 1 next year on a structure and the process of obtaining the necessary staff to fill positions.
He will meet unions tomorrow to discuss matters relating to staff transfers and has undertaken to write to staff as soon as possible about interim arrangements.
