Today marks one-year since the creation of the new City of Canterbury Bankstown.
Administrator Richard Colley thanked the staff for the progress made over the first 12 months of the amalgamation.
"This transition period has been a very busy time, with the alignment of contracts, processes, procedures and systems," Mr Colley said.
"Bringing two large organisations together takes time but I am so proud of how hard the staff have worked together to achieve this.
"But the job is far from finished, with plenty of work still to do, however we have made terrific progress.
"We have already achieved $4.5 million in savings and are on track to double that by the end of the year. Those savings are already being directed into new programs, such as the Campsie Graffiti Removal Program. We are also working on the introduction of a single call centre system by the end of the year, which will further reduce response times in our Customer Service Centres.
"We are working with the community to find out what major infrastructure projects they believe should be considered to make the city an even better place to live, work and enjoy. They can visit haveyoursay.cbcity.nsw.gov.au to provide that information."
Important projects that have recently been completed, or are in the process of being delivered, include:
Other achievements include:
"I am confident, come the September Council election, solid foundations will be in place for the new Councillors to hit the ground running," Mr Colley said.
"The decisions we have made are aimed at improving the delivery of services."
