MM18.12    Mayoral Minute - Tomerong Quarry

 

HPERM Ref:       D18/209894

Attachments:     1.  Attachment - Scope for Tomerong Quarry   

Recommendation

That

1.    Council endorse the attached ‘service specifications’ as a Terms of Reference to independently investigate issues that have been raised by the community in respect to the compliance action of council and operation of Tomerong quarry.

2.    Council send the ‘service specifications’ to the following workplace conduct investigators for their consideration:

·    Mr Allan Yates – Internal Ombudsman at Burwood Council; and

·    Mr Andrew Patterson – Internal Ombudsman for a number of NSW Councils, currently undertaking contract work for Council’s as requested.

3.    Council support that a budget item be raised for the payment of any costs incurred.

 

 

Details

A Motion was made in response to the report at the Strategy and Assets meeting (15 May) as follows;

 

That: 

 

1.       The report be received for information on the proviso that no assumptions are made in regard to its conclusions and adequacy. 

 

2.       The General Manager commission an independent external investigation into the issues that have been raised by the community in respect of the compliance action of Council and operation of Tomerong Quarry.

 

3.       Further reports on the Quarry be provided to Council as the matter is further investigated.

 

To execute an independent investigation Council must agree to a terms of reference / service specification to enable the engagement of a suitably qualified person/s. I have recommended to Council that we forward these specifications to two work place conduct investigators. Mr Yates and Mr Patterson are skilled investigators and either one would be an excellent candidate to undertake the work on behalf of Shoalhaven City Council and neither has a previous relationship with Council.
