The City of Wagga Wagga has clarified the appointment of an independent investigator engaged to investigate allegations of a conflict of interest concerning the Council’s General Manager.

Council's workplace relations solicitors, WilliamsonBarwick, recommended the appointment of a former Human Resources Manager with Canterbury City Council.

The independent investigator is planning to visit Wagga Wagga in early March and the report is expected to be completed by the end of March.

The City of Wagga Wagga has access to a panel of solicitors from more than 10 firms.

WilliamsonBarwick is not the firm of solicitors that provided legal advice to the General Manager concerning his alleged conflict of interest.
