Cr Paul Funnell’s motion to sever the City’s sister City arrangement with Kunming in China was narrowly supported last night during the 14th April council meeting.  Voting to halt the relationship were Crs Funnell, Braid, and Koschel.  Voting against the motion was Crs Hayes, Keenan and Kendall.

Mayor Greg Conkey was absent, Deputy Mayor Tout declared  a conflict of interest. So this left Cr Koschel to take the chair and used his casting vote to pass the motion.  You can watch the live stream of the council meeting in it’s entirety below.
