Mr Christopher Kendall, the barrister retained to conduct the Inquiry into the City of Canning, has determined hearings will be conducted openly from June.
In what looks to be a very long due process, the first hearing will be held in Council Chambers, City of Canning, thereafter at Central Law Courts in the CBD.
It is possible extensions of time could be sought for this inquiry, as has occurred in the past (see reports of inquiries conducted in to Cities of Joondalup, South Perth and Cockburn here).
If the Council is ultimately dismissed, it may be months before new Council elections are convened especially for the City of Canning.
Residents will lack for democratically elected Councillors to represent their interests in budget planning, service provision, council amalgamation and planning matters, for up to two years.
Unlike earlier inquiries, Canning has only been appointed one Commissioner to ensure appropriate governance of a local government area with over 90,000 residents.
