CCC reimbursement for former City CEO

PERTH City Council will foot the bill for former chief executive Frank Edwards legal costs for his involvement in a Corruption and Crime Commission (CCC) investigation.

Mr Edwards was reportedly “examined on oath” regarding the CCC report, which found Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi failed to declare gifts and travel in her 2008-2009 annual return.

The council agreed to reimburse Mr Edwards $2860 at a meeting last week, after expenses incurred in his role from 2002-2012.
