UPDATE: Councillors tight-lipped on meeting outcome
UPDATE, 4PM: Councillors have remained tight-lipped on the outcome of today's extraordinary meeting.
The meeting contained one agenda item - titled 'General Manager's Employment Contract'. However the eight councillors present voted unanimously to keep the decision from the meeting confidential.
The meeting began at 11am and quickly resolved to go into confidential session. Four of the council's senior staff, Ashley Lindsay, Des Schroder, Troy Anderson and Kristian Enevoldson, declared an interest in the matter and left the meeting room for the confidential session.
There was no sign of Mr Greensill at the council chambers. He would not have been permitted to take part in the meeting.
Councillors debated for about 90 minutes, before returning to open council, where it voted to keep the resolution from the debate confidential, allowed under a section in the Local Government Act.
