Cr to pay $40k for selling plants without licence

The Office of Local Government and Mayor Denise Knight has responded to the recent case involving Cr John Arkan.

"This is a private legal matter between the councillor and other parties to the court proceedings and does not fall within the ambit of the Model Code of Conduct for Local Councils in NSW," an office spokesperson said. You said:

Phil Tripp - The real hot story will come out in the next few days as new information has come forward. It's a shame that rules prevent Council from ridding itself of this serial offender but we'll have that ability at the voting booth next year if Arkan doesn't do the right thing and bow out now by resigning. That would address the voting balance of Council to stop ties just as it would if they had run a by-election to elect a new one.

Leonie Todd - The world is full of colors to enjoy. Everyone should be proud of whatever colour they are not ashamed of it. We can't change what color milk is or a black,brown or white cow,horse or whatever. This crap is getting more ridiculous every day

Sarah Howard - Seriously next we won't be able wear black or white clothing.

Laura Burton - Better get rid of brown sugar next.

John Unome - Change all images of Jesus to a brown man, his rightful colour if he existed.

Jackie Wood - What about brown and white bread. Surely that has to go

Nora Brooks - What a load of crap.
