Senior Ipswich City Council officer charged by corruption watchdog
A senior officer with the Ipswich City Council has been charged by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) for alleged misconduct.
The 54-year-old man, from the Ipswich suburb of Yamanto, was yesterday served with the notice to appear.
In a statement, the council confirmed the officer would be suspended from immediate duties on full remuneration.
Mayor Andrew Antoniolli said his office would offer any assistance to the CCC.
“As Mayor, I can assure the ratepayers of Ipswich that I have zero tolerance when it comes to any illegal activity,” he said.
“This is a new era of council, run on the principles of transparency and the highest standards of integrity.
“I will not be making any further comment at this stage.”
