Shire of York threatened with suspension

The Barnett government has threatened to suspend the Shire of York for up to six months over its inability to provide good governance.

Local Government minister Tony Simpson said on Thursday the shire had been issued with a show clause.

The historic wheatbelt council had three weeks to respond.

Mr Simpson said his department had expressed concerns for some time about the shire’s ability to provide good governance.

“During the monitoring period, a significant number of issues emerged, giving rise to concerns about the council’s ability to effectively manage the operations of the shire and to provide good government for the people in its district,” he said.

“I have formed the view there is sufficient evidence that it is inappropriate for the Shire of York’s council to continue without intervention.

“In accordance with my obligations under the act, I will decide what action to take after I have received a response from the shire.”

Mr Simpson said the shire was told councillors undertake training in leadership, governance and procedures.

Earlier this year Shire of York CEO Ray Hooper quit after almost 10 years in the role.

His resignation came after councillors launched a review into his conduct and performance. Follow WAtoday on Twitter
