Council to discuss embattled chief executive

5:12 pm on 9 July 2013

The Christchurch City Council is to hold a meeting on Wednesday - from which the public will be excluded - to discuss the the situation regarding its embattled chief executive.

Tony Marryatt, who has been blamed by councillors for not telling them about the severity of the building consents crisis before the council's accreditation was revoked, was sent home on leave last week.

The only item on the agenda for the meeting is a report from the chief executive sub-committee.

A committee member, Peter Beck, wouldn't say whether Mr Marryatt's job is on the line.
