Recently there was an issue with a Monash Councillor (Theo Zographos – Councillor in firing line for not signing code of conduct) for not signing the code of conduct in front of the CEO, but now the Government stated there might have been some stuff ups!
“Councillors who failed to properly sign a new code of conduct have been spared disqualification and will be able to comply by February. Acting Local Government Minister Richard Wynne said there had been a failure of administrative duties by councils and incompetence in some cases.” Source: The Age
The local Government Minister Richard Wynne mentioned that he received letters from council’s admitting they had made a mistake.
Apparently due to the errors, 107 councillors from 13 different councils faced suspension!
