The Northern Territory Local Government Association (LGANT) says the fate of the Victoria-Daly Shire Mayor is in the hands of an independent disciplinary tribunal.
In a special meeting held earlier this month, a unanimous vote of no confidence was lodged by the Victoria-Daly Council earlier this month against Councillor Don Wegener.
Mr Wegener has chosen not to resign.
Two councillors have written statutory declarations regarding the Mayor to the independent tribunal.
The Victoria-Daly Shire Council chief executive officer, Sandra Cannon said two councillors have made formal complaints against the Mayor.
“As long as they have the numbers and the councillors wish to vote on that resolution they don’t need to state a whole list of reasons,” Ms Cannon said.
“The current reasons are that they have no faith in his leadership and they wish him to resign.”
The President of LGANT, Kerry Moir, said the Local Government Act has provisions for deadlocks such as this.
“[An independent disciplinary] tribunal will investigate those stat decs and the information and allegations made in those stat decs,” Ms Moir said.
“Also of course the Mayor himself has the right to put in a complaint if he is unhappy with the process that has been followed by the council.”
Mr Wegener has not returned the ABC’s calls.
