The General Manager of Eurobodalla Shire Council (ESC), Jim Levy admitted in front of the entire council and a packed gallery that he may have breached the privacy act.
Colleen Ennis, whose property borders the site for Australian Silicon’s proposed charcoal factory, asked Mr Levy if he had breached the privacy act by giving a map plus names, telephone numbers and addresses to the company. Mr. Levy tried to dodge the question. Ms Ennis asked him again, “Mr Levy did you breach the privacy act?”
Mr Levy answered, “Yes, I may have.”
Eurobodalla Shire Council’s Mayor, Peter Cairney stated this matter would be investigated.
“All the council documents pertaining to the charcoal factory have been taken to the Minister for Local Government, Harry Woods.” Charcoalition members may pursue this matter privately.
