Georges River Council served with a Notice of Intention to Issue a Performance Improvement Order
 
Georges River Council has received a Notice of Intention to Issue a Performance Improvement Order (PIO) from the Minister for Local Government.
 
The proposed PIO requires Councillors to stop:

  • making allegations which imply wrongdoing of staff or councillors,

  • asking questions about ICAC investigations,

  • leaking confidential information.

Mayor of Georges River Council, Kevin Greene is disappointed but not surprised by the notice. “It is galling that the behaviour of a few councillors has led to the Council now being required to respond to this Notice,” he said.
 
“The majority of councillors have every reason to be angry that the pattern of poor or inappropriate behaviour by certain councillors led to the Minister issuing this Notice. The actions that have led to a Notice being issued are a direct result of the behaviour of councillors centred around the active and ongoing investigation by ICAC into Councillors Badalati and Hindi,” said the Mayor. 
 
Under the terms of the Notice, Council has fourteen days to make a submission to the Minister before a final determination is made on whether to issue the Performance Improvement Order.
