Final meeting for Qld’s Ipswich council

The Ipswich City councillors about to be sacked by the Queensland government will hold what is expected to be their final meeting on Monday.

The government will on Tuesday introduce laws to sack the entire council and appoint administrators after a corruption probe saw 15 people, including two former mayors, charged with 86 offences.

Those matters are now before the courts but the government has said the council cannot remain in office. Ten councillors who aren’t facing any allegations are expected to give farewell speeches at Monday’s meeting.
