Report on a Matter of Governance at the Shire of Dowerin

Node Title

10 October 2016

A Corruption and Crime Commission report presented to State Parliament today exposes “breathtaking ignorance” of the role and responsibility of local government councillors and challenges all local government authorities to assess and upgrade their resistance to corruption.

The Report on a Matter of Governance at the Shire of Dowerin follows the sentencing of former Shire CEO, Dacre Alcock.

Mr Alcock was CEO of the Shire of Dowerin for seven years from 2008. For four years, from 2011 until he was arrested by CCC officers in October 2015, he stole almost $600,000. The amount stolen was about $850 per resident.
