TIME’S up for the dysfunctional City of Perth council.
Local Government Minister David Templeman this afternoon announced he intends to suspend the council, with more details on how to be revealed on Friday.
“A line needs to be drawn in the sand,” he said.
“It is my view council should be suspended.
“On Friday after additional advice to determine which method of suspension I would be progressing (action).”
He said ratepayers and business owners “deserve better”.
“They have not received quality governance,” he said.
It is understood the council could be issued a show cause notice or Mr Templeman could launch an inquiry.
The latest blow to the City council comes less than 24 hours after a second acting chief executive was voted in during a heated special council meeting.
More to come.
