Mo­tion ‘out of or­der’

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion - By JU­LIAN WRIGHT

A MO­TION for Town of Cam­bridge to drop le­gal ac­tion against a ratepay­ers’ group was lost at this week’s coun­cil meet­ing.

Coun­cil­lor Rod Bradley’s mo­tion urged the chief ex­ec­u­tive to dis­con­tinue all le­gal ac­tion against the Coast Ward Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion, sparked by Amend­ment 31.

Cr Corinne MacRae said the mo­tion was “out of or­der”. Cr Bradley moved the mo­tion be­cause the orig­i­nal Amend­ment 31 as de­bated, ad­ver­tised and ini­ti­ated no longer ex­isted due to changes made by for­mer Plan­ning Min­is­ter John Day.

Spend­ing more ratepay­ers funds to “at­tack” the as­so­ci­a­tion would re­flect ad­versely against the coun­cil.

The coun­cil re­port noted the pro­posed mo­tion was “not ac­cu­rate” as the Town was the re­spon­dent to le­gal ac­tion ini­ti­ated by the as­so­ci­a­tion.
