Mayor story cor­rec­tion

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

IN last week's edi­tion, we pub­lished an ar­ti­cle about a City of Bel­mont coun­cil vote on how its mayor should be elected in fu­ture. As stated in the ar­ti­cle, the coun­cil voted 5-4 against chang­ing the cur­rent sys­tem of the mayor be­ing cho­sen from among elected coun­cil­lors. The rec­om­men­da­tion for change to al­low the mayor to be di­rectly elected by City of Bel­mont ratepay­ers was ac­tu­ally put for­ward by Cr Pa­trick Gard­ner, not a coun­cil plan­ning of­fi­cer as im­plied in our story.
