Corr blimey, he’s sorry

The apology was made at the council meeting on April 15 after an order from the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT).

The tribunal found Cr Corr had breached the local government rules of conduct at a November 2012 council meeting by not disclosing he was an executive committee member of the Joondalup Business Association.

The councillors were considering $60,000 funding to the Small Business Centre, of which the JBA was a member.

In May 2013, the local government standards panel determined the sanction of a public censure was required based on the seriousness of the breach and Cr Corr’s previous rules of conduct breach. In July 2013, Cr Corr requested SAT review the standards panel’s determination.

The tribunal confirmed the panel’s decision on April 11, 2014.
