Outgoing County Manager wants his work continued

As County Manager Michael Mc Loone nears the end of his tenure, he says he wants his successor to continue pursuing change in the council.

He says one of his central aims has been to make services more streamlined, and ensure that efficiencies are implemented across the board.

However, speaking to Highland Radio News at a County Development Board strategy seminar, Mr Mc Loone acknowledged that the decentralisation of services has not been as successful as he had hoped.

He says he wanted to see even more integration between different agencies and services.
