Peter Sing attended a job interview in Kyabram from Maryborough as a 17 year old on a dare without his parent's knowledge. Peter has just brought up 50 years service and is Campaspe Shire's longest serving employee.
Campaspe Shire’s longest serving employee Peter Sing would not have swapped his job for anything.
Peter has just brought up 50 years of serving the original Kyabram Town Council and the Shire Of Campaspe after starting work as junior office clerk at Kyabram in 1964.
The late Jack Cleary was town clerk of Kyabram at the time and the late Arthur Crow was the mayor.
Peter progressed in his job from junior clerk to rates administrator with the Kyabram Town Council before moving to Echuca just before council amalgamations in 1995, where he became assistant to the chief executive for a time until the amalgamations became official before taking over the shire’s revenue manager portfolio.
At Kyabram, Peter worked under town clerks Jack Cleary, Ed Cornish, Don McKenzie and John Costello and actually did chief executive duties for the Kyabram Council for a year between the transition from Ed Cornish to Don McKenzie.
Peter said the council amalgamations and the move to the computer age had been then two major adjustments he had to make in his career in local government.
