The Mayor of Ararat moves interstate
Reports have revealed the Mayor of Ararat Rural City Council, Glenda McLean, is allegedly now living interstate.
Multiple sources have spoken to a local Fairfax Media paper revealing Councillor McLean has moved up north to Queensland after removal trucks were reported to be outside her residency, packing up her possessions.
At this stage there will be no inference from the Victorian Government, as the Ararat Council has the sufficient number of councillors to call a general meeting to form a quorum.
There are media reports Cr McLean has taken a job in far north Queensland at the Mount Isa Hospital, more than 2600 kilometres away from Ararat.
Mount Isa Hospital has been contacted but they could not confirm nor deny Cr McLean is employed there.
Cr McLean has failed to attend recent councillor briefings in person in the past several weeks, but is expected to be present at the next monthly council meeting this Tuesday night from 6.00pm in the Council Chamber, Shire Hall, Barkly Street.
