Statement by Palm Island Mayor Alf Lacey
The Crime and Corruption Commission has announced that an employee of Palm Island Aboriginal Shire Council has been charged with 24 fraud offences following an investigation by the CCC. As this matter is before the courts, it is not appropriate for myself or the council to comment.
Palm Island Aboriginal Shire Council Advice:
Please be advised that all residents must continue to boil all drinking water - including those houses with filters on taps.
Council will advise once the need to boil water has been lifted.
We still ask that residents reduce their water use until further notice.
