Council to sell Blue Haven Bonaira

An Extraordinary Meeting of Kiama Council has agreed to sell Blue Haven Bonaira, with Labor Councillor Stuart Larkins siding with the Mayor Neil Reilly, and Councillors Brown, Steel and Croxford to vote for the amended rescission motion.

The Mayor argued that the Minister for Local Government wanted to see decisive action being taken, “The Minister sent us one letter, it was a warning, we ignored it. A week later she sent a letter which says it is her intention to issue Performance Improvement Orders and install a financial advisor.

“I have no doubt that what the Minister wants is a very clear signal that we are prepared to take the hard decisions.”

The councillors against the amended motion – Rice, Renkema-Lang, Keast and Draisma – argued the opposite, saying that the Minister’s letter and attachment outlining her expectations showed that she wanted all options to be considered through proper business cases that are expected to be completed by December.
