County Council censures fellow councillor
-by Rankin MacDonald
Inverness County Council took action last week against one of its own.
At the monthly session of County Council on Thursday of last week, council voted to censure District #4 (Whycocomagh/Orangedale/Ainslie) councillor John MacLennan.
The motion to censure was introduced by councillor Jim Mustard, who said that MacLennan had acted against the county by sharing confidential information from in-camera meetings and his municipal email account.
He went on to say that contracts and wages were being discussed in public and that confidentiality has to be respected at this level for all concerned.
