Three Kiama councillors want motion to sell Blue Haven rescinded


Kiama Council's plan to sell its Blue Haven aged care business is in doubt with a rescission motion being submitted by Councillor Karen Renkema-Lang.

The motion has also been backed by Councillors Kathy Rice and Jodi Keast despite last week's majority vote of seven to two supporting a plan to begin the sale process.

Kiama Mayor Neil Reilly indicated the motion could be debated and voted on next week.

"I have considered the rescission motion and I will seek to have it included as a confidential item in next week's proposed Extraordinary Meeting, where we will also be debating the draft Community Strategic Plan, the Development & Operational Plan and the Budget.

"The latter items will be debated in public," he said.

Kiama Council's CEO Jane Stroud will continue to meet, as promised, with Council and Blue Haven staff but planned meetings with Blue Haven and ILU residents, Home Care recipients and their families will be held over until the rescission motion is finalised.
