Ombud report reveals SA council spent thousands on flowers, meals, roof climb - The Mandarin
He argued the practice of staff buying flowers for each other using council credit cards — except for in cases of bereavement — along with the failure to keep accurate records, constituted “substantial” mismanagement of public resources.
The ombud also found a range of businesses gave council employees gifts, such as concert and sporting tickets, which breached the (now defunct) code of conduct at the time. However, he noted there has been a significant reduction in gifts accepted since the current Code of Conduct for council employees was enacted in 2018.
Lines reported the council spent $4,923 on a roof climb at Adelaide Oval as part of a strategic planning day.
“Whilst it may have been an enjoyable, morale-building experience for the council employees, I do not consider that the public gained any benefit from the inclusion of the roof climb as an activity. Mr Dowd has acknowledged that community sentiment was opposed to the expenditure associated with the roof climb,” he wrote.
He concluded the former mayor Lorraine Rosenberg did not commit maladministration in public administration, and recommended the council amend its Purchase Card Procedure by removing a provision that allowed staff to not record the reason for an expense when making a purchase.
The acting CEO Kirk Richardson has apologised on behalf of the council.
“The expenditure was out of step with our community’s expectations and we acknowledge that,” he wrote in a statement.
“We’re continuing to work hard to regain the trust of our communities and acknowledge that more transparent and accountable work practices are required to achieve that.
“The purchases highlighted as inappropriate by the ombudsman should not have been made at the expense of ratepayers and he has advised that improvements were necessary to our policies and procedures.”
He said the council has been looking for a new CEO, and has “stronger policies and procedures in place that continuously remind us we are here to serve our communities and their best interests”.
