Public hearing in SAT for Scaffidi

MEDIATION between lord mayor Lisa Scaffidi and WA’s local government department has reportedly broken and she will now face a public hearing in front of the State Administrative Tribunal.

The SAT had been trying to mediate an agreement on what potential sanction Ms Scaffidi might face over failures to declare gifts and travel, but two attempts have now failed and the hearing will likely go ahead in February.

Last year the corruption and crime commission found Ms Scaffidi had breached rules by accepting prohibited gifts from companies that had dealings with councils and failing to properly declare other gifts.

Ms Scaffidi no longer speaks to the Voice but told The West Australian she was “looking forward to this matter being concluded and understood”.
