Talk of a special meeting is quashed, for now

TALK of a special meeting at council to bring human relations issues to a head has been quashed, for now.

The Wangaratta Chronicle received an anonymous tip off that Rural City of Wangaratta councillors would hold a special meeting today where staffing issues involving the corporate management team (CMT) would be discussed.

It follows last week’s Fair Work Commission conference, which was attended by the CMT, consisting of chief executive officer, Doug Sharp and directors Ray Park, Ruth Tai and Andrew Close, as well as executive manager – economic development, Graham Nickless, while in a separate room were Mayor Rozi Parisotto, Crs Julian Fidge, Tammy Atkins, Noel Amery and acting chief executive officer, Kelvin Spiller.

Mr Spiller said there would be no special meeting today.

He said he was limited in what he could comment on.

“The council, through me as the acting chief executive officer, continue to work with the CMT to find a way forward,” Mr Spiller said.
