Jane Redden will continue to lead the Narromine Shire Council for another five years.
At the October 9 council meeting, the council resolved to renew the current general manager's contract of employment and reappoint her for a further five years.
Narromine Shire Council mayor Craig Davies said Ms Redden has been the general manager at Narromine Shire since February 2017 and continues to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the business of council.
"Jane has made a significant difference to the productivity and performance of the organisation and the lifestyle improvements to the shire and its community," Councillor Davies said.
"Communication between myself, Jane and other councillors is fantastic."
