the key to identifying potential dysfunctionality within the Council

Dear Editor,

The six Eurobodalla councillors who appear to hold the power possibly aren't aware of the public shaming of the former Hurstville City Council (Editorial, March 29). The 2016 Office of Local Government (OLG) investigation into Hurstville (where meetings weren't webcast) found that "....the key to identifying potential dysfunctionality within the Council relies on understanding the power bases upon which these blocs operate and the motivations of those individuals that operate within them." Hurstville Council, however, was too arrogant to listen and was dissolved, merged with Kogarah and placed under administration. It's disturbing that any council operates in such a manner, and if Eurobodalla goes as far as to cease webcasts of the public forums I strongly urge residents and responsible councillors to call for an urgent OLG investigation.
