Councillors to have nine-week break
Central Coast councillors will have a nine-week break over the Christmas period after they hold their last council meeting for the year on Monday, December 9.
The councillors will not hold any more meetings until February 10 next year.
Deputy mayor Cr Jane Smith asked for a meeting in January she did not get the numbers at the November 25 meeting, with only Clr Louise Greenaway supporting her.
Cr Smith said it was concerning that the governing body of the council was not meeting for nine weeks - more than two months in a 12-month period.
Chief executive Mr Gary Murphy said he had delegations in his position as general manager and the mayor had authority under the Local Government Act to make decisions if the need arose.
