Mercury (Hobart)



CLARENCE Council is not dysfunctio­nal. During Covid it was alone in continuing services, freezing rates and, unique among councils, retaining a balanced budget. Ensuring transparen­cy, representi­ng the community and keeping each other and staff accountabl­e are legitimate functions of council. Mayor Chipman, unlike some, has the maturity to agree to disagree without manufactur­ing conflict where none exists and turning every issue into hyperbolic, attention-seeking warfare.
