The Tumby Bay District Council has found themselves at a standstill following a serious administrative error discovered this month.
CEO Rebeca Hayes found the error while sifting through council records trying to locate ordinary returns for any council members for the June 30 2019 period.
Following further inquiries, it was established that there was a lack of ordinary returns for the period indicating there was a misunderstanding within council’s previous administration.
This has resulted in all council elected members forced to stand aside until the issue is solved.
The Tumby Bay Council hopes to resolve the issue before the next council meeting on May 11th.
