Glenorchy City Council

Earlier today, Her Excellency, the Governor signed into law the Glenorchy City Council (Dismissal of Councillors) Act 2017.

This means the suspended Glenorchy City Councillors have now been dismissed.

The Act also enables a fresh election for Glenorchy City Council early next year and that process is now in place.

Last Friday I received the final Board of Inquiry report into the Glenorchy City Council and I am currently considering its findings.

My intention is to release it publicly before the end of the month, because the Government believes it is important the Glenorchy community has time to consider the report’s findings as well as all of the information it contains.

The Governor has appointed Sue Smith as Commissioner until the new Glenorchy City Council has been elected in early January and I would like to thank Sue Smith for her leadership through this difficult period.
