In 2015, the Glenorchy City Council Board of Inquiry (the BoI) commenced a wide- ranging investigation into the governance and statutory functions of the council.
A complaint received by the Commission alleged that the BoI had failed to conduct itself in a fair, honest and competent way and raised concerns about how the BoI obtained evidence and the conclusions it drew from that evidence.
Our investigation found no evidence to suggest that the BoI was biased or unfair in the conduct of its inquiry. Further, we found the draft and final reports had a sound evidentiary basis for the conclusions and findings made.
