Councillors to vote on Cowling’s appointment

COFFS Harbour City Council's current penchant for rescission motions has surfaced again with a rescission motion on the agenda for Thursday night's meeting to remove Cr Nan Cowling from the review panel for the general manager's performance.

Cr Cowling was made a member of the review panel at the August 14 meeting on a 5-4 vote after she self-nominated for the position.

She was the only nominee after Cr Mark Sultana refused Cr Bob Palmer's nomination.

Mayor Cr Denise Knight made the matter a mayoral minute at that meeting.

Cr Keith Rhoades, Cr Garry Innes and Cr Bob Palmer subsequently put in a rescission motion, saying if it was successful, they intended to nominate Cr Palmer for the review panel.
