Empty seats at annual shire electors’ meeting

Shire councillors and staff outnumbered electors at last month’s poorly attended annual general meeting in the Toodyay Memorial Hall.

The meeting was advertised two weeks earlier in the Avon Valley Advocate paid newspaper published in Northam, on the shire website and Facebook, and in the shire’s January Toodyay Community Newsletter.

No questions were asked, no general business was raised and the meeting lasted just five minutes.
