Office of the Administrator Media Release - Administrator denies any plans to sell Central Coast Water


Thursday, 17 December 2020


Central Coast Council Administrator, Mr Dick Persson AM said media reports that there was a plan to sell Central Coast water is absolutely untrue. 

“I suspect this story has been placed by a person trying to deflect from their contribution to the financial disaster which is upon the Central Coast Council” said Mr Persson. 

“This issue was mentioned in a media interview on ABC with one of the local members of parliament, and a prominent local business man told me it was something that should be looked into. I requested advice from the Chief Financial Officer and it was immediately pointed out it would be a dumb decision given the amount of revenue it generates for Council. That was the end of it from my point of view. I reiterate there is no plan to sell this business. It will not happen.”
