The City of Casey welcomes today the appointment of Ms Laurinda Gardner as a Monitor for the City. Her appointment is until January 31, 2020 and will take effect immediately. Her roles are to advise the Minister of the following:
- if Councillors, individually or as a group, are behaving in a manner that does not accord with the role of Councillor
- of any impact on the integrity and/or functioning of council decision-making and the orderly governance of the City of Casey arising from Operation Sandon.
The city council is looking forward to working with her to ensure governance and decision-making is being upheld with the community’s best interests at heart.
