Today, I issued a notice of my intention to extend the temporary suspension of the Norfolk Island Regional Council (NIRC), and the appointment of interim administrator Michael Colreavy, for a further three months.
This has been done in line with the requirements, and my authority, under the Local Government Act 1993 (NSW) (NI).
The NIRC has made progress towards restoring its proper or effective functioning during the current term of the interim administrator. However, the NIRC needs to do more work in order to restore its proper or effective functioning. It is important an interim administrator continues to oversee these efforts.
I will continue to keep you informed as any decisions are made.
