Full coverage of Batemans Bay flying fox issueEurobodalla Councilor Milton Leslight is placing the blame for past inaction on flying foxes squarely at the feet of council.

“Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt said ‘get an application in and we will give you approvalwithin 48 hours’,”Cr Leslight said in reference tothe meetingon Monday night.

“Andrew Constance made it perfectly clear that the State Government will support any actionproposed by council for the immediate dispersal of the bats.”

Cr Leslight gave the following account of events at Eurobodalla Shire Council chambers thefollowing day:

“Firstly a senior bureaucrat declared that it would take three days to arrange an emergency councilmeeting and this was later modified to 24 hours by the general manager,” he said.

“I immediately pressed forsame and gave clear guidelines of community expectations but was unsuccessful and was advisedthat a meeting was unnecessary.

“Then followed approximately one hour of green rhetoric on ‘why it can’t be done’instead of ‘how itcan be done’. A bat supporter called the attendees at Monday’s meeting a revolting, horrible,hostile mob, or words to that effect.

“Pleas from Liz Innes and me to get the water removed from the water gardens, and trimming of theCasuarina tress under way, fell on deaf ears again.

“In apress release, theMayor implies that Andrew Constance, and the NSW Government have failed to removeimpediments that prevent the dispersal. This is complete and utter rubbish.

“He then calls forsupport from his colleagues for an active dispersal at an unspecified time in winter.

“Mayor Brown failed miserably on Monday night to display the leadership demanded by the Stateand Federal Government representatives at his side.

“If the Mayor cannot deliver the goods, I reiterate my request for him to stand down and I call for allthe other Councillors and staff who have been complicit with the pursuit of inaction and delaying tacticsto be held accountable and let the NSW Government appoint anadministrator who will get the job done.”
