Coun­cil­lors tied up in meet­ing memo

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

Male coun­cil­lors and City of Kar­ratha staff have stepped for­mal­i­ties up a notch and be­gun wear­ing ties at coun­cil meet­ings.

There was a very Perth vibe in the coun­cil cham­bers last Mon­day as ev­ery male mem­ber around the ta­ble bar one strut­ted out in busi­ness at­tire com­plete with a tie. Cr Bart Par­sons went full suit.

Roe­bourne ward Cr Garry Bai­ley seems to be ignoring the memo.

Pre­vi­ously coun­cil­lors mostly stuck to busi­ness at­tire mi­nus the tie.

The ex­cep­tion was for­mer coun­cil­lor Michael Say­lor who rocked up to most meet­ings wear­ing his NAIDOC shirt.

The fe­male coun­cil­lors have al­ways dressed well.

The Pil­bara News will keep you up­dated with Cr Bai­ley’s fight for our Pil­barar­ian right not to wear a tie at next month’s coun­cil meet­ing.

City of Kar­ratha failed to re­spond by time of print.
