A local council in Melbourne’s outer south-east will get its own watchdog in what has been described as a highly ‘unusual’ move.

The Victorian Ombudsman found Casey Council appeared to have acted unjustly and illegally, conducting 37 per cent of its decisions in secret. 

Monash University governance expert Associate Professor Ken Coghill explained more on 3AW Breakfast.

‘The basic principle has to be that the people affected by decisions can see what the basis of the decision is,’ he said.

‘It is a very unusual thing, and a very appropriate thing to happen in this particular case.’
