MIN.NO.107                  COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE

At this stage the Council resolved itself into a Committee of the Whole to the exclusion
of the Press and Public to deal with the following items.

Item 2 of the Acting Chief Executive’s Report No. 8/04 – COURT ACTIONS -
PROGRESS REPORT.

NOTE: Pursuant to Section 10A(2)(g) of the Local Government Act 1993, this item was
considered to the exclusion of the press and public as it concerns litigation, or advice
that would otherwise be privileged from production in legal proceedings on the ground of
legal professional privilege. It was further considered that discussion of this
matter in open meeting would, on balance, be contrary to the public interest as it would
unduly prejudice Council’s ability to appropriately resolve this matter.

A confidential supplementary report dated 22 June 2004, on pages 90 - 92 of the Chief
Executive’s Report No. 8/04 on ADVICE REGARDING 27 AMIENS STREET,
GLADESVILLE – Land & Environment Court Proceedings, was considered in
conjunction with this item.

It was resolved on the motion of Councillors Petch and Yedelian to recommend to open
Council –

(A)    THAT THE PROGRESS REPORT OF THE ACTING CHIEF EXECUTIVE
       DATED 18 JUNE 2004 ON COURT ACTIONS BE RECEIVED AND NOTED.

(B)    THAT THE REPORT OF THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE DATED 22 JUNE 2004 ON
       ADVICE REGARDING 27 AMIENS STREET BE RECEIVED AND NOTED.

Item 11 of the Acting Chief Executive’s Report No. 8/04 - 13 HAIG AVENUE,
DENISTONE EAST APPEAL TO THE LAND AND ENVIRONMENT COURT – Local
Development Application 683/2003.

NOTE: Pursuant to Section 10A(2)(g) of the Local Government Act 1993, this item was
considered to the exclusion of the press and public as it concerns litigation, or advice
that would otherwise be privileged from production in legal proceedings on the
ground of legal professional privilege. It was further considered that discussion of this
matter in open meeting would, on balance, be contrary to the public interest as it would
unduly prejudice Council’s ability to appropriately resolve this matter.

It was resolved on the motion of Councillors Wilde OAM and Tagg to recommend to
open Council –

THAT IN VIEW OF THE LEGAL ADVICE RECEIVED NO FURTHER ACTION BE
TAKEN IN THIS MATTER.

MIN.NO.107 CONTINUED

Item 9 of the Public Facilities & Services Committee Report No. 7/04 - WASTE
MANAGEMENT – Disposal Costs – Offer by Collex Pty Ltd and Item 12 of the Acting
Chief Executive’s Report No. 8/04 - WASTE DISPOSAL – Offer from Waste Service
New South Wales

NOTE: The Mayor, Councillor Perram disclosed a non-pecuniary interest in these items
for the reason that Waste Service NSW, a competitor of Collex Pty Ltd, has been a
client of his business. He left the meeting between 10.26pm and 10.34pm during
discussion and voting thereon.

The Deputy Mayor, Councillor O’Donnell, was Chairperson for these items which were
considered in conjunction with each other.

Pursuant to Section 10A(2)(d) of the Local Government Act 1993, these items were
considered to the exclusion of the press and public as they concern the receipt and
discussion of commercial information of a confidential nature that would, if disclosed,
prejudice the commercial position of the persons who supplied it. It was further
considered that discussion of these matters in open meeting would, on balance, be
contrary to the public interest as it would unduly prejudice Council’s ability to
appropriately resolve these matters.

It was resolved on the motion of Councillors Petch and Campbell to recommend to
Open Council –

THAT THE OFFER FROM COLLEX PTY LTD FOR THE TRANSFER OF WASTE TO
THE CLYDE TRANSFER TERMINAL AS OUTLINED IN THE ACTING CHIEF
EXECUTIVE’S REPORT DATED 8 JUNE 2004 TO THE PUBLIC FACILITIES &
SERVICES COMMITTEE NO. 7/04 BE ACCEPTED.

NOTE: At this stage of the meeting, the time being 10.34pm, The Mayor returned to
Chair the remainder of the meeting.

On resuming business in Open Council, the Chief Executive formally reported the
business transacted in Committee, and it was resolved on the motion of Councillors
Petch and Wilde OAM -

THAT THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE'S REPORT OF THE BUSINESS TRANSACTED IN
COMMITTEE BE RECEIVED AND ADOPTED AS RESOLUTIONS OF THE COUNCIL
WITHOUT ANY ALTERATION OR AMENDMENT THERETO.
