NEXT week’s Derwent Valley Council annual general meeting has been postponed for an unspecified period due to the lack of a critical document. Originally scheduled to be held in December, the AGM was initially deferred to February 25 and it has now been put off until a later date.
A council spokesman said the latest postponement was due to the absence of a report from the Tasmanian Audit Office. An independent audit of each council’s financial report is provided each year by the auditor-general for inclusion in council annual reports. The council spokesman said the date of the meeting would be advertised once the auditor-general’s report was received.
The Central Highlands Council AGM was held earlier this week, including a statement from assistant auditor-general Leigh Franklin that the council’s financial report was in accordance with the Local Government Act and Australian Accounting Standards.
The monthly council meeting scheduled to be held in the Derwent Valley Council social rooms at 6pm on February 25 has been transferred to the New Norfolk War Memorial Hall.
