Best back in the frame

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Manning -

FOR­MER City of South Perth Mayor James Best’s por­trait could be hang­ing on the wall again after tonight’s coun­cil meet­ing.

The is­sue was not dis­cussed at last week’s agenda brief­ing but tonight coun­cil­lors will vote on whether to re­scind part of a mo­tion passed in 2012 that re­sulted in his por­trait be­ing put in to stor­age.

It was re­moved be­cause it did not con­form to coun­cil pol­icy.

Mr Best said he had moved on from the is­sue but it was nice of the coun­cil to re­con­sider the is­sue.

At the Au­gust 2012 meet­ing, the coun­cil sup­ported a mo­tion that if Mr Best did not re-sit for another por­trait, the ex­ist­ing one would be put in stor­age.

Coun­cil staff has rec­om­mended that coun­cil­lors agree that the por­trait of the for­mer mayor be dis­played with other may­oral por­traits in the Coun­cil Mem­bers room.
