Audit ‘a waste of money’

老域名

TENS of thousands of Mount Isa taxpayers’ dollars will be wasted during an internal audit, says councillor Anne Seymour.

Cr Seymour has hit out at accusations after councillors ordered a forensic auditor to investigate corruption claims against chief executive Emilio Cianetti.

Councillor Jean Ferris moved the motion last month for an investigation to be conducted, with an auditor employed to resolve the matter.

Cr George Fortune supported the council audit but Cr Kim Coghlan requested that her objection to the audit was formally recorded.

Mayor Tony McGrady moved that “the council has complete and total confidence of the honesty and integrity of the chief executive officer,” which was seconded by Deputy Mayor Brett Peterson.

Cr Seymour said the accusations would cost the council money in tough financial times and would eventually be a burden on ratepayers.

“Frivolous, unsubstantiated and false accusations by elected councillors cost ratepayers thousands of dollars each term,” she said.

“We lose with unjustifiable time and human resources, which could have been better used in supplying the needs and requirements of the ratepayer.

“This is made even worse by councillors who actually con the ratepayers that they are working for them and are truly on a vendetta hunt of their own.

“In the first couple of months of being elected as a councillor I was told by Cr Ferris of these accusations that concerned council employees.

“I asked the relevant parties and found that was all false, I then dropped those thoughts as there was nothing to act upon, but the horrible rumour-mongering continued and I defend the staff when asked the questions.”

Cr Seymour said she would put her job on the line to back up Cr McGrady and Mr Cianetti.

“If there is any criminal intent or wrongdoing by the mayor and CEO I will put my job on the line and resign, but I would like to challenge Cr Ferris and Cr Fortune to put their money where their mouths are and resign if there are no wrongdoings – and that will save the ratepayers heaps in lost time and revenue,” she said.

“I don’t grandstand, because having spent 37 years in private industry, this does not satisfy the customers.”
