‘Friends of Nillumbik supporters note that at the last Policy and Services meeting a paid consultant making a presentation to Council was given a very generous amount of time despite not having written a submission on the matter. At no time was it mentioned that this consultant was being paid by Council. Is it the responsibility of the Chair of the Policy and Services Committee to ensure that the Good Governance Code and the Local Government Act is complied with when consultants present to the Committee? We request that the rules for presenting at Council meetings be altered so that “special interests” such as those receiving a pecuniary benefit be publicly disclosed.’
