Mayor Confirms Costs for Investigation Into Former GM

Wagga Mayor Greg Conkey has confirmed that more than $35,000 has been spent in legal costs and investigations into former General Manager Alan Eldridge.

Since February, $20,395 has been spent in legal costs, while another $15,492.64 has been paid to a private investigator employed to look into allegations made against the former GM.

Cr. Conkey says it should also be noted this is not a final figure, as Council expects further invoices, which will be made available to the public once they are received.

Meantime, Mr Eldridge has also released a statement, saying he considers that he has not been treated "within a natural justice framework".

Mr Eldridge also says he will not be making any further comment outside of the supplied statement, "due to legal action pending".
