Glenorchy City Council

I have received advice that a Council cannot be dismissed before a Board of Inquiry has delivered its report to me.
However, I can suspend the councillors of a Council while the Board of Inquiry is conducting its work as I did earlier this year.
The suspension of the Glenorchy aldermen is due to expire on 8 August.
I am advised that I can exercise the power to suspend again and when that time comes I will consider all options available to me.
Residents can be assured that I will always act in the best interests of the Glenorchy community.

Peter Gutwein, Minister for Planning and Local Government

    Launceston, not any better. An average 3 bedroom house on a 703 square metre block costs about $1500 a year in rates. The only benefit is our bins get emptied, the culdesac gets swept when it is coming up to rates time. The small nature reserve nearby gets mowed a couple of times a year. The powers that be seem to treat our rate money as though it comes from ‘cash cows’ and that there is plenty more where that comes from. Sponsoring sporting teams, sucking up big time to developers, and tissying up Launceston city itself when it’s perfectly fine the way it is and other parts, already tissied up were fine. The jaunts overseas paid for by the ratepayers is a disgrace and the donation of public land to UTAS is just as bad. The LCC is not State or federal gov’t, so should just be catering to ratepayers and not the big businesses who want Disneyland or mini Melbourne.

    Minister Gutwein MP Brighton Council has been more dysfunctional than Glenorchy, and Huon Valley when are you going to investigate this lot that have had a 30+ year’s FREE REIGN?.
