Council administration extended three months
The NSW Government has extended the suspension of Central Coast Council for an additional three months.
Minister for Local Government Ms Shelley Hancock said it followed a request from interim administrator Mr Dick Persson for more time so he could continue to develop and implement a recovery strategy to address the financial crisis.
"The interim administrator's 30-day report alone made a compelling case for more time to address the significant financial issues and dysfunction plaguing the council," Mrs Hancock said.
"In particular, Mr Persson is focusing on recruiting a new general manager and putting a new budget in place for next financial year."
