Comment on Cr Melky breaks silence on Code of Conduct complaints  by Hal Duell.

So now Council has to vote on whether to accept an apology for non-attendance. I wonder what will happen if they vote not to accept an apology?
In another matter, Council just lost a legal battle to recover money for an unpaid rates bill, or the interest accrued on that bill. Gary James Carter successfully argued that Council had stepped well over a six year time limit to recover the disputed money. A Sydney lawyer was engaged to argue Council’s case, but why wasn’t that statute of limitations picked up by Council’s in-house legal team? Those Sydney lawyers cost money, plus airfares, accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
And now we also have a Code of Conduct kerfuffle, questions about the budget and a murky if not outright misleading online survey about the Anzac Oval. Not looking real good, Council.

Onya, Rex. If ever there is a local theatrical adaptation of The Silver Skates I hope you take the leading role.

Perhaps a bit optimistic to think the heritage minister, Lauren Moss, would act to preserve the Coles Mural when she is actively attempting to turn the arguably more heritage rich Anzac Oval into a bus parking bay for the proposed gallery.
