City Council chief quits

12:54 pm on 12 July 2010

Tauranga City Council chief executive Stephen Town has resigned.

He is to take up a position as the Transport Agency's regional director for Auckland and Northland.

He says the past eight years has been a period of unprecedented challenge and change.

Tauranga Mayor Stuart Crosby says Mr Town will be remembered for his support of staff during the flood and slip event of 2005.
