A DRAFT report of the authorised inquiry into the City of Melville has been delivered to chief executive Marten Tieleman, elected members and some staff members by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, but it will not be made public yet.

It has been more than a year since the inquiry was authorised on November 30, 2017.

All parties now have the opportunity to comment in writing on the draft report within 21 days.

A Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries spokeswoman said the information had been provided on a confidential basis because the report had not yet been finalised.

“Submissions and feedback have been sought and following the 21-day submission period the department will consider any responses and finalise the report,” she said.

“A copy will then be provided to the Minister for Local Government to be tabled in Parliament.”
