Petition to the Hon Peter Gutwein MP Minister for Planning & Local Government


Minister, in June 2016 you decided to give directives which generally accorded with the secondary recommendations of the Board of Inquiry Report into the Huon Valley Council. 


With respect Minister, the Huon Valley Council is unable to comply with those directives because it continues to be completely dysfunctional as a result of the unworkable relationship between the Mayor, the General Manager and certain other Councillors.


The residents of the Huon Valley Council are completely disheartened by the ongoing infighting in Council and are becoming completely disengaged with our Council.


Council is no longer capable of serving its community.


We believe that the implementation of the primary recommendations in the Huon Valley Council Board of Inquiry is the only way to achieve greater accountability and transparency in our Council.


We, the undersigned, hereby petition the Hon Peter Gutwein MP, Minister for Planning and Local Government to immediately implement Recommendation 1 and Recommendation 2 of the Huon Valley Council Board of Inquiry Report which are.


R1:    Pursuant to section 226(1)(b) of the Act, the Minister is to recommend that the Governor by order dismiss the councillors and appoint a Commissioner under section 231 of the Act to perform the functions of the Council.


R2:    A new election is not called for a minimum period of 12 months.


As this is an online petition, we ask that you at least submit your postcode with your signature so that the Minister is made aware of the degree of municipal support this petition has received.
