Council quiet on iBar action

TWEED councillors have again voted to throw a veil of secrecy over their discussions about whether or not to continue threatened legal action against the controversial iBar restaurant in the heart of Tweed Heads.

Councillors this week decided to drop legal action but held their vote and debate on their reasons behind closed doors after agreeing with Cr Dot Holdom that the matter should not be aired publicly because it had previously been kept confidential.

The council’s minutes simply reveal councillors voted unanimously in favour of a recommendation to back away from the previous hardline against alleged breaches of council rules.

Councillors were infuriated early this year when the restaurant initially opened as a lap-dance bar.

In June they voted at a behind-closed-doors session to take the matter to court in a bid to force owner Warren Armstrong to dance to a different tune. Chief planner Vince Connell recommended “court action not proceed”.
