Western News last week revealed that board members clashed over its chairman Mike Mora making a deputation to the city council on behalf Mike Mora of the board. Now further investigations by the newspaper have shown previous clashes between board members reached all the way to the top of the city council. City council chief executive Karleen Edwards received complaints about the conduct of board members last year. Dr Edwards told Western News the complaints were dealt with informally. She refused to comment on the nature of the complaints for “privacy reasons”. Mr Mora said the complaints were now “history”. “[Complaints were] from individual board members, I understand [they] have been to Karleen.” The board’s deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton said she was only aware of one complaint, but that dated to about 18 months ago, prior to the Denton Park mega centre debate. She declined to make further comment. Mayor Lianne Dalziel and Dr Edwards met with the board behind closed doors ‘People who signed a confidentiality agreement and then talk about what happened should see if they are a fit and proper person to continue in the role as an elected member’ – Mike Mora in September last year. “This centred on the challenges they faced, in particular, surrounding the Denton Park decisionmaking process, and their relationships and joint decisionmaking,” Dr Edwards said. Ms Dalziel said she was present at the meeting in support of the chief executive. Mr Mora agreed that there was tension at times surrounding the Denton Park decision. •Turn to page 4 Hornby High gets one over Prebbleton HORNBY HIGH School year 7 and 8 netballers triumphed 8-6 over their Prebbleton counterparts on the final day of the annual Koru Games at Lincoln on Thursday.
