Bioelektra secret report

February 16, 2024 10:11 am in by

Member for Kiama Gareth Ward has today called on Shoalhaven City Council to release the secret report conducted by the Office of Local Government into Bioelektra.

On the eve of a public holiday, council quietly announced that it had received the department’s report into Bioelektra.

“It’s not good enough for council to quietly mention this report in passing. Where is it! The public have a right to see it given that millions of ratepayer dollars were blown on this stuff-up,” Mr Ward said.

“This report was undertaken following the pressure I applied to the Minister for Local Government in Parliament.

“Whilst I’m pleased the report has been done, I’d like to read it for myself rather than the summary provided by council on the eve of a public holiday.

“It’s simply not good enough to keep local Shoalhaven residents in the dark and the report hidden.

“Shoalhaven City Council needs to release the report and make it publicly available as soon as possible and inform local Shoalhaven residents on the actions it is taking to ensure we don’t see more ratepayer money wasted in the future,” Mr Ward concluded.
