Three Victorian councils will be watched for the next nine months amid concerns over their governance. Local Government Minister Shaun Leane confirmed on Tuesday that monitors for Darebin City Council in Melbourne and Moira Shire and Wodonga City Councils in the upstate would be in place until January. John Watson, Marg Allan and Janet Dore will work with their respective councils to improve practices and help councilors ensure they are fulfilling their role properly. The monitors will provide regular progress reports to the Minister and recommend any further action as necessary. Wodonga City Council welcomed the appointment of controllers, saying there were concerns about the behavior of a councillor. “The CEO has raised concerns with the minister about her failure to meet her legal responsibilities to ensure workplace safety,” the statement released earlier this month said. “CEO Clare Keenan and Mayor Libro Mustica thank the Minister for taking their concerns seriously and acting so quickly.” Australian Associated Press
