Mayor’s actions queried

The actions of Wattle Range Mayor Des Noll were twice queried by an elected member during the May monthly council meeting.

Councillor Moira Neagle reminded the mayor that he had told the January meeting that his approach to the office in his second term at the helm would be different to his first.

“How is it different?” asked Cr Neagle.

“You will see,” Mayor Noll said in reply.

“I am refreshed after a 16-day holiday.”

Later in the meeting when a council behaviour policy was under consideration, Cr Neagle again quizzed the mayor.

“If a sexist comment was made at a council meeting, would it be called out?” Cr Neagle said.

“For example, if women were called sheilas?”

In response, Mayor Noll said he would intervene if inappropriate terms were used.
