Conflict of Interest IAF fund

Stefan Brown made this Official Information request to Upper Hutt City Council

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Stefan Brown to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Stefan Brown

Dear Upper Hutt City Council,

I am seeking information regarding a possible conflict of interest. The current Mayor is listed on the UHCC register of interest web page as of the 8th of July 2021 as the President of the Wellington Racing Club. He also chaired the meeting in August 2021 which chose to apply for the IAF for the proposed racecourse development which by admission in the recent media articles will financially benefit the Wellington Racing Club . As this part of the meeting was public excluded are you able to advise if the Mayor abstained from voting on this matter? And if he did not on what grounds was his voting on this matter not in contradiction of council policy on such matters.

Yours faithfully,

Stefan Brown

Kia ora Stefan,

 

Thank you for your below Local Government Official Information and
Meetings Act 1987 (the Act) request dated 1 May 2022.

 

To answer your request for official information, the Mayor did not abstain
from voting on this matter.

 

UHCC Standing orders contain rules for the conduct of the proceedings of
local authorities, committees, subcommittees and subordinate
decision-making bodies. A link to our [1]Standing Orders has all the
information related to conflicts of interest for our elected Council (see
20.7 and 20.8 in the document). You will note that neither the Chairperson
nor the meeting may rule on whether a member has a conflict of interest in
the matter being discussed.

 

I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any further requests
for official information, please get in touch.

 

If you are dissatisfied with our response, you have the right to seek an
investigation and review by the Ombudsman. Information about how to make a
complaint is available at [2]www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800
802 602.

 

Warm regards,

Michael
