The Shire of Dumbleyung said goodbye to its chief executive Peter Crispin last week, after his resignation because of ill health.

Mr Crispin has been with the Shire since September last year but this month he announced he would be stepping away because health issues were hindering his ability to fulfil his role.

“I’ve only been able to run on six or seven, sometimes as low as four cylinders,” he said.

“It’s just not fair on the council anymore and I really need to just take some time to get myself healthy again.

“It’s time for me to retire.”

Mr Crispin said the staff at the shire were great and would offer strong support for the new chief executive.

“It’s a really good community. I’ve really enjoyed being a part of it and I hope they keep moving forward,” he said.

A Shire spokesman he understood and appreciated the reasons behind Mr Crispin’s resignation and hoped his health would improve as he focused on new beginnings in retirement.
