Director Shire Services Confidential Report H1-H4

  • Reason for Presentation of Report on a Confidential Basis

    This report is submitted on a confidential basis as it involves commercial information of a confidential nature that would, if disclosed, prejudice the commercial position of the person who supplied it. (Local Government Act 1993, section 10A(2)(d)(i))

    On balance, the public interest in preserving the confidentiality of the commercial information supplied, outweighs the public interest in openness and transparency in council decision making by discussing the matter in open meeting.

    On balance, the public interest in preserving the confidentiality of the advice outweighs the public interest in openness and transparency in Council decision making by discussing the matter in open meeting.
