Declaration of council as non-functioning

257 Declaration of council as non-functioning

(1) An administrator may be appointed for an area by the Governor without the necessity for a public inquiry if the Governor declares the council to be non-functioning because--
(a) the requirements of this Act as to the making and levying of an ordinary rate have not been followed, or
(b) the council has not exercised its functions for 6 months or more, or
(c) there are not enough councillors for there to be a quorum at council meetings.
(2) The Governor may, as an alternative to the appointment of an administrator on the ground referred to in subsection (1)(c), appoint (or authorise a special election to elect) councillors to fill all the vacancies on the council or such number of those vacancies as will provide a quorum at meetings.
