Kāpiti Council Review in 30 Days
May 14, 2020
Kāpiti District-wide councillor Rob McCann has moved to have the Kāpiti Council's Organisation Review Report by Martin Jenkins seen within a month.
The motion, in several parts was:
That the Report be released at the same time to the Mayor, Councillors, Board Chairs and CEO followed by a briefing of councillors by Report author, Tom Gott.
That the report be released to board members and the public after the briefing of councillors by Mr Gott.
That councillors release a press release following the briefing.
That at an appropriate time, after the release of the Report, the CEO tables a short position paper on the steps needed by management to progress any relevant recommendations made by the Report.
That the Council recognises the uncertainties around the Alert Levels associated with Covid-19 may potentially have a bearing on the above."
Cr McCann says he hopes this clarifies the many questions that have been posed, and assures the public that the report will be made public, and will be received by council and councillors at the same time without any interference from any parties. And, that it will then be released to the public.
"I and all the councillors I have heard speak on this topic all want
Kāpiti mayor K Gurunathan requested that the release of the report be put on hold back in March when it became clear that the Council needed to focus its attention on supporting the Kāpiti Coast community to respond to COVID-19 pandemic and planning for the district's recovery. He says "as we move into Level 2, the council is now in a position to consider this report and give it our full attention.
