The situation at Canning is becoming diabolical and it should be the first council to come under scrutiny of the Auditor General, in moves planned by the State.
Minister for Local Govt, Paul Miles, could be indicating this may happen in an article out today in Canning Times: “Local Govt Minister reminds Canning Mayor to act in best interests of ratepayers over CEO review“.
Mr Miles has been refreshingly vocal about not tolerating bullshit from our local govts and their councils.
As for Mayor Paul Ng, he has become an outright hypocrite, behaving in much the same way the former Mayor was accused of doing – and the political wannabes, mostly poor performers and Mike Nahan cronies on Canning’s current council are no better.
I don’t think Canning’s troubles are over and unless that finally changes it may be better to cease it operating as a local govt authority.
