Contact:

941 5108

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

         1.1     The purpose of this report is to outline the options available to the Board in respect of the extraordinary vacancy arising from the recent resignation of the Chairperson Paul McMahon.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That the Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board:

(a)           Receives the notification of Paul McMahon's resignation of the Chief Executive Officer.

 

(b)           Resolves pursuant to section 117(3)(b) of the Local Electoral Act 2001 to leave

unfilled the extraordinary vacancy created by the resignation of Paul McMahon, and that the Chief Executive Officer be requested to immediately give public notice of that decision;

 

 or

 

(c)           Resolves to appoint a person for the unexpired balance of the current triennium created by the resignation of Paul McMahon, as provided in section 117(3)(a) of the Local Electoral Act 2001.

 

               and

 

(d)           Adopts by resolution, which system of voting it will use to elect a Chairperson, that is System A or System B.

 

(e)           Proceeds to elect a Chairperson and if required a Deputy Chairperson.

 

 

3.   Key Points

 

3.1       The Board received formal notification from the Chief Executive Officer Paul McMahon's resignation on 30 March (in accordance with Section 117 of the Local Electoral Act 2001).

3.2       Paul McMahon resigned as an elected member of the Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board with effect from 31 March 2016.

3.3       Where a resignation occurs during the triennium an extraordinary vacancy is created and the provisions of Sections 117-120 of the Local Electoral Act 2001 apply.

 

3.4       Section 117 provides that where a vacancy occurs within 12 months of the next triennial local government elections a by- election is not required but the Board has the option to either leave the vacancy unfilled or to appoint a person to fill the vacancy for the balance of the current triennium.

 

3.5       If the Board resolves to leave the vacancy unfilled immediate public notice of that resolution is required to be given.

3.6       If the Board resolves to appoint a person to fill the vacancy for the balance of the current triennium immediate public notice of that resolution is also required to be given including the name of the appointee and the process or criteria by which the person was selected for appointment.

 

3.7       In addition to the extraordinary vacancy on the Board Paul McMahon's resignation has left the position of Chairperson of the Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board vacant. The Local Government Act 2002 requires that the Board elect a Chairperson and as necessary a deputy chairperson.

 

 

4.   Legal considerations

 

4.1      Section 117 of the Local Electoral Act provides:

 

                  (2)     If a vacancy occurs in the office of a member of a local authority or in the office of an elected member of a community board 12 months or less than 12 months before the next triennial general election, the chief executive of the local authority concerned must notify the local authority or community board of the vacancy immediately.

 

                  (3)     On receiving notice under subsection (2), the local authority or community board must, at its next meeting (other than an extraordinary meeting) or, if that is not practicable, at its next subsequent meeting (other than an extraordinary meeting), determine by resolution –

 

                           (a)     that the vacancy will be filled by the appointment by the local authority or community board of a person named in the resolution who is qualified to be elected as a member;

 

                                    or

 

                           (b)     that the vacancy is not to be filled.

 

                  (4)     If for any reason the person specified in the resolution is unavailable, or otherwise unable to be notified of the appointment, a further vacancy occurs in that office.”

 

         4.2.    Section 118 provides as follows in respect of any decision to make an appointment to fill an extraordinary vacancy:

 

                  “118   Notice of intention to fill vacancy by appointment

 

                  (1)     If, under section 117(3)(a) or section 117A, a local authority or community board resolves that a vacancy will be filled by the appointment of a person by the local authority or community board, it must immediately, unless the vacancy is for the office of mayor, give public notice of—

 

                           (a)     the resolution; and

 

                           (b)     the process or criteria by which the person named in the resolution was selected for appointment.

 

                  (2)     The local authority or community board must, at a meeting held not later than the expiry of the prescribed period, by resolution confirm the appointment described in the resolution under subsection (1); and the person appointed is for all purposes to be treated as having been elected to fill the vacancy on the date on which that resolution is made.

 

                  (3)     For the purposes of subsection (2), the expiry of the prescribed period is 30 days after the date of notification of the resolution under subsection (1).

 

                  (4)     If for any reason the person specified in the resolution is unavailable or otherwise unable to be confirmed in the appointment, a further vacancy occurs in that office”.

 

 

          4.3               Section 54 of the Local Government Act 2002 specifies that the provisions of Schedule 7 of the Act apply to Community Boards (with some minor exclusions) and with necessary modifications as if the Boards were local authorities.  Schedule 7 requires that each Community Board must elect one of its members to be its Chairperson and may appoint another to be Deputy Chairperson (see clauses 26 and 37 of Schedule 7 of the Act).

 

 

          4.4     The manner in which a Community Board is to elect the Chairperson is prescribed in clause 25 of Schedule 7.  It provides that the Community Board must determine by resolution that the Chairperson be elected or appointed by using one of the following systems of voting:

 

                   “System A—

 

(a)       requires that a person is elected or appointed if he or she receives the votes of a majority of    the members of the local authority or committee present and voting; and

(b)       has the following characteristics:

                (i)        there is a first round of voting for all candidates; and

                (ii)       if no candidate is successful in that round there is a second round of voting    from which the candidate with the fewest votes in the first round is                            excluded; and

                (iii)      if no candidate is successful in the second round there is a third, and if              necessary     subsequent, round of voting from which, each time, the                             candidate with the fewest votes in the previous round is excluded; and

                (iv)      in any round of voting, if 2 or more candidates tie for the lowest number of                votes, the person excluded from the next round is resolved by lot.

 

                   System B—

 

                (a)       requires that a person is elected or appointed if he or she receives more votes than                  any other candidate; and

                (b)       has the following characteristics:

                (i)        there is only 1 round of voting; and

                (ii)       if 2 or more candidates tie for the most votes, the tie is resolved by lot.”

          4.5     In simpler terms, under System A a candidate is successful if he or she receives the votes of the majority of the members of the Community Board present and voting.  If no candidate is successful in the first round there is a second round of voting from which the candidate with the fewest votes in the first round is excluded.  If no candidate is successful in the second round there is a third and if necessary subsequent round of voting from which each time the candidate with the fewest number of votes in the previous round is excluded until a candidate is successful.  In any round of voting if two or more candidates tie for the lowest number of votes the person to be excluded from the next round is resolved by lot.

 

          4.6     System B is a first past the post system except that a tie for the most votes is resolved by lot.

         

          4.7.    The Board must first determine by resolution, which system of voting it will use, that is System A or System B.

 

          4.8     Nominations for the position of Chairperson are to be called for.

 

                   If there is only one candidate then the Board may resolve that that person be elected.

 

                   If there is more than one candidate the Board must then put the matter to a vote according to the system it has adopted.  The Board members are then asked to vote on each candidate.

 

          4.9     The following examples may be useful to illustrate the two voting systems:

 

         


 

          System A

 

                   Example 1

 

                   Three nominations are received and upon the votes being counted the result is: 

                   A (4)   B (2)   C (1).  In this case A is elected to the relevant position.

 

                   Example 2

 

                   Three nominations are received and upon the votes being counted the result is:

                   A (3)   B (3)   C (1).  In this case no candidate is a successful so a second round of voting is held for candidates A and B.  The lowest polling candidate, C, is excluded.

 

                   Upon the votes being counted in the second round the result is:

                   A (4)   B (3).  In this case A is elected to the relevant position.

 

                   System B

 

                   Example 1

 

                   Three nominations are received and upon the votes being counted the result is: 

                   A (4)   B (2)   C (1).  In this case A is elected to the relevant position.

 

                   Example 2

 

                   Three nominations are received and upon the votes being counted the result is:

                   A (3)   B (3)   C (1).  In this case a lot is held to determine who between A and B will be elected to the relevant position.

4.2       Wrights Road Addington Replacement Wells

 

The ongoing Northwest Zone Water Supply Upgrade involves the drilling of new deep wells to achieve secure groundwater provision and drinking water quality standards (and essential compliance with the Ministry of Health's New Zealand Drinking Water Standards by 30 June 2018) for the Northwest Christchurch Community zone.

 

The existing Wrights Road well-site is a key component of the Council's Northwest water supply zone but it no longer complies with current standards without the addition of expensive water treatment.  A technical solution would be the replacement of the existing wells with two new deeper wells at Wrights Road or at an alternative site in the vicinity.

 

Staff propose to produce a report to the Board at its 20 May meeting addressing the ongoing Northwest Zone Water Supply Upgrade and outlining the process undertaken to identify Marylands Reserve as the preferred option for the new wells and seeking approval to the granting of necessary easements to convey water over the reserve.

 

Staff have advised that due to the pressing time constraints it is proposed to overlap the public notification process with the report to the Board to enable the outcome of the notification process to be available for Board consideration at its 20 May meeting.  To this end a public notice - will be published in The Press this Saturday, 16 April (timeframe for submissions closes Wednesday
18 May).
