Government 'terminates' all councillors

Minister for Local Government Ms Wendy Tuckerman has "terminated all councillors" as a result of the public inquiry into the Central Coast Council.

"Commissioner Roslyn McCulloch's report makes eight recommendations, including that an administrator be appointed to serve until the Central Coast Council election."

The date of the election will be determined in consultation with the NSW Electoral Commission.

Mrs Tuckerman said: "The Government accepts the Commissioner's remaining recommendations in-principle.

"The community rightly expects that its elected council officials adhere to the highest standards and this report makes strong recommendations to help improve the council's performance moving forward," Mrs Tuckerman said.

"The Commissioner's report raised concerns about the financial management of Central Coast Council and makes practical recommendations to improve accountability.

"Central Coast ratepayers deserve a council operating in the best interests of its community and this report puts in place recommendations to continue the road to recovery."
