Shire of Mundaring to revisit youth service funding after councillor intervention

MUNDARING council is going back to the drawing board over a multi-thousand dollar contract to provide the Shire’s youth service after a councillor asked for a decision to be reviewed the following day.

Councillor Stephen Fox moved to revoke a motion by Cr Jason Russell to provide a youth partnership funding program for the youth service.

The motion was carried 6-5 at the council meeting on Tuesday.

Shire of Mundaring will hold a Special Council Meeting to reconsider their options for the delivery of youth services.

Cr Fox said he wished to rescind Tuesday’s decision to allow more time to access additional information.

In February, councillors knocked back a recommendation to award the $216,200 three-year contract to MercyCare.

Under the Local Government Act, any motion to revoke or change a council decision must be supported by at least a third of the number of council members inclusive of the mover.
