Meet­ing over park­ing de­ferred

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE City of Su­bi­aco de­ferred its meet­ing with Wil­son Park­ing last week be­cause of “con­cerns from some elected mem­bers”.

Coun­cil­lors last month ap­proved Cr Mark Burn’s elected mem­ber’s mo­tion that staff pre­pare a re­port on the le­gal sta­tus and ten­ure of its man­age­ment agree­ment with Wil­son Park­ing.

A City spokes­woman said the now-de­ferred meet­ing was in­tended to be a “con­struc­tive dis­cus­sion around the work­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween the City and the com­pany”.

“The meet­ing was de­ferred with re­gard to con­cerns from elected mem­bers that such a dis­cus­sion was go­ing to oc­cur prior to the re­port to the coun­cil on Septem­ber 22,” she said.

Cr Burns said the meet­ing would have been con­trary to his mo­tion, as it did not sug­gest the City “at­tempt to re­build its re­la­tion­ship” with Wil­son Park­ing.

Last Fri­day, a Wil­son Park­ing spokes­woman said the pri­vate park­ing op­er­a­tor “looked for­ward to con­tin­ued work with the City of Su­bi­aco”.

“Wil­son Park­ing is con­tracted as man­ager (of the Sed­don Street carpark) by the City of Su­bi­aco to pro­vide park­ing on the coun­cil’s be­half,” she said.

Wil­son Park­ing cur­rently man­ages the Sed­don Street carpark.
