Council slams Crisafulli for ‘weak leadership’
SUNSHINE Coast Council has come out swinging at Local Government Minister David Crisafulli, claming a complete lack of leadership while fobbing off the final decision in the de-amalgamation asset split.
Mayor Mark Jamieson said an independent accountant should never have been necessary because strict rules were in place to calculate who owed what.
Mr Crisafulli told The Daily on Wednesday an audit would start within two weeks to determine how to split the remaining $22.4 million in cash reserves between the Noosa Shire and Sunshine Coast Council.
He told the two councils to "grow up" and to stop "squabbling" over the five remaining points of contention in cash reserves.
Division 2 councillor Tim Dwyer said it was disappointing Mr Crisafulli's leadership had waned when things became rocky in the de-amalgamation process.
"When controversy comes into the picture it is a shame the same leadership isn't shown and he refers to a project manager," Cr Dwyer said.
