Timor gets Sydney style

TWO senior managers of Sydney's New Year's Eve celebrations will go to East Timor to produce East Timor's inaugural Independence Day celebrations in May.

Sydney City Council decided last night to provide about $65,000 in salaries and expenses for New Year's Eve artistic director Ignatius Jones and production manager Ed Wilkinson to go to East Timor to manage the event.

The United Nations will fund four other New Year's Eve team members from Sydney.
