Dumb And Dumber, And Friends

18 Jun

It’s pretty bad when Council does not agenda a Rates Resolution but at least it proves the point that process is there for a reason.  Had it been part of the agenda and circulated widely, the general public (smarter than the average council worker or councillor) might have pointed out that their financial year is an impossibility.

Two options I suppose.  Sweep it under the carpet and pretend it didn’t happen (in true ICC fashion) or accept it happened and fix it.  There is still enough time to rustle up a meeting before 30 June.

Where any extraordinary meeting of a local authority is called and notice of that meeting cannot be given in the manner required or permitted by this section, the local authority shall cause that meeting and the general nature of business to be transacted at that meeting to be publicly notified or otherwise advertised as soon as practicable before the meeting is to be held.
