Coun­cil stoush

Townsville Bulletin - - Talk Of North -

THE cy­clone aside, it has been a big year for the John­stone Shire Coun­cil. Mayor Neil Clarke has had some mo­men­tous fights with break­away coun­cil­lors. The most re­cent shenani­gans in­clude the sus­pen­sion from coun­cil of Cr Tom Mauloni and the dis­grace­ful Christ­mas ham af­fair. Cr Mauloni has been sin-binned for two months for the crime of giv­ing di­rect in­struc­tions to coun­cil staff. This is a di­rect statu­tory breach of Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment’s code of con­duct laws and is one that coun­cil­lors are made aware of the first day they are on the job.
