Se­cret busi­ness

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News | Times -

Shire cor­po­rate and com­mu­nity ser­vices di­rec­tor An­nie Rior­dan says no de­tails can be pro­vided about a con­fi­den­tial in­surance set­tle­ment ap­proved by coun­cil­lors last week.

Ac­cord­ing to the coun­cil re­port, the mat­ter in­volved “the con­sid­er­a­tion of a con­tract of set­tle­ment, a term of which re­quires con­fi­den­tial­ity”.

“The Shire is bound by a con­fi­den­tial­ity agree­ment on this mat­ter, and is not in a po­si­tion to dis­close any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion,” Ms Rior­dan told the Times.

The Shire re­fused to de­tail the cost to ratepay­ers for the set­tle­ment as well as any de­tails about the nature of the mat­ter.
