Cr Cecato won the position of Deputy Mayor against Cr Sally Townley at the latest CHCC meeting last Thursday 10 September by one vote.
The vote was 4-3.
The Mayor Denise Knight left the meeting earlier in evening, citing a “family emergency”.
Nevertheless Mayor Knight did however ensure she had time to defeat a rescission motion aimed at deferring the leasing of the Coffs Coast Regional Airport until economic conditions improved.
She yet again used her casting vote after the vote was tied 4-4 with Councillors Amos, Arkan, Swan and Townley for the rescission motion and Councillors Addendorf, Cecato, Knight and Rhoades voting against it.
Cr Tegan Swan has been the Deputy Mayor for the past two years.
Today, Saturday 12 September, was scheduled to be the Local Government election day. It has been deferred one year due to the Covid19 crisis.
