Council's legal fees are nowhere to be found


Dear Anthony O’Reilly, Director of Finances, Eurobodalla Shire Council,

I would be pleased to receive a breakdown of all legal fees paid by council in relation to advice ( including to whom), proceedings taken/pending for and/or against Eurobodalla Shire Council for the past 5 years including the general substance of each case and/or advice undertaken or sought by Council.

I further seek information regarding the outcome of all legal proceedings taken by or against council and the cost to council thereof in either taking these proceedings and/or defending proceedings taken against them and the financial benefit/loss to council as a result of the taking/defence of any legal proceedings.

This information does not appear in any reports available on your website. Coral Anderson

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name or Nom de plume for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
