At June’s Council Meeting I moved an amendment to cap the Lord Mayor’s office budget at $1.5 million. Currently, it sits at $3.7 million and increases each year in excess of CPI and totals over $40 million across the forward estimates. In addtion, she currently employs 21 staff members, a number I attempted to cap at 8. Unfortunately my sensible amendment was voted down by the Lord Mayor and her party members.
