On 15 September 2009, the Victorian Minister for Local Government announced that the City of Brimbank council would be sacked, and administrators appointed until November 2012,[1] this followed the Ombudsman's report in May and two reports from the Local Government Inspector.

Appointment of Inspectors of Municipal Administration[edit]

Following the Ombudsman’s report into the council in May, the Victorian Government accepted all the recommendations in the report[1] appointed Bill Scales as an Inspector of Municipal Administration to monitor the council[2][1] and a former police detective David Walker as an Inspector of Municipal Administration to investigate potential breaches of the Local Government Act at the council.[1]

The second report from Bill Scales showed a failure of councillors to reform their practices and address issues of probity and misconduct, and in September 2009, the minister announced that the council would be sacked, and administrators appointed.[1]
