4.1 Contractural matter
That the meeting not move into camera for consideration of this item
A Division was called.
On the results of the Division the motion was declared lost
That in accordance with Section 61 (1) and 66 (2)(a) of the Local Government Act 2020 Council resolve to go into camera and close the meeting for the consideration of this item, as the matter to be discussed is confidential information for the purposes of section 3 (1)(ii) of the Local Government Act 2020, because it is private commercial information, being information provided by a business, commercial or financial undertaking that if released, would unreasonably expose the business, commercial or financial undertaking to disadvantage.
This ground applies because the matter concerns commercial-in-confidence tender prices. Announcement of the overall contract outcomes and the successful contractor has also been embargoed until public project launch on 20 May 2021.
The meeting was closed to the public at 6:41pm.
That the meeting move out of camera and be reopened to the public.
The meeting was reopened to the public at 8:03pm.
Meeting closed at 8:03pm
