Integrity Commission Report into the Glenorchy City Council

The Integrity Commission’s report into the Glenorchy City Council is very concerning reading.

There was no doubt that the Glenorchy City Council was not performing, which is why the Hodgman Government established a Board of Inquiry in October 2015, suspended the Council in early 2017 and ultimately passed legislation to dismiss the Council and hold fresh elections.

I understand the Director of Local Government has reviewed the Integrity Commission’s report and is further investigating a number of matters to determine whether referral to the Director of Public Prosecutions should occur.

The Government is determined to ensure that any potential breaches of the law are investigated fully.
