Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

I don’t know about you but I am confused.

The rules that govern debate in Local Government meant that a compromise solution could not be debated at last weeks City Strategy & Policy committee meeting.

Members and those in the gallery interested in what next were left stunned.

It appears that procedure must see us debate at Council this coming week on the original motion and the vote is likely to be in the negative. A new motion has been foreshadowed by my co-councillor to put the compromise solution.

If this does occur I am likely to support the motion purely to find out what those affeted by the project think about the compromise.

Obviously there is more to come on this and I will offer another post on the subject after the Coucnil meeting.
