Ethics chief questions council

THE chairman of the Derwent Valley Council’s “code of conduct” panel has taken the unusual step of addressing the council during public question time. Mr Robert Walker was one of four ratepayers to question the council at its January meeting last week, but the detail of his query was not revealed.

Mayor Tony Nicholson announced to the meeting that Mr Walker had a question on the subject of the council’s public perception. Then, in a break with normal procedure, the mayor declined to read the question to the meeting, saying it was quite long and detailed, and said he would take the matter on notice. This generally means the questioner will receive their answer in writing and the public will be none the wiser.

The New Norfolk News extends an invitation to Mr Walker to have his question published here, along with any answer received.
