Only his seconder, Councillor Geoff Booth, voted with Cr Eli Melky (pictured) in favour of his motion to revive plans for a youth curfew.
The proposal was defeated six votes to two at last night’s town council meeting. (Cr Chansey Paech was on leave.)
A related motion, to seek an urgent meeting with Minister for Children and Families Robyn Lambley, who is also the Deputy Chief Minister and Minister for Central Australia, received a strong yes vote.
The council wants to know what youth initiatives the government is planning and what resources will be available.
