I forgot to add this when I posted last night.  The Cumberland Courier reported that 3 Fairfield City Council councillors have been ordered by an independent conduct reviewer to apologise to their colleagues.  Fairfield Council was also advised to provide training on code of conduct during council meetings.  http://cumberland-courier.whereilive.com.au/news/story/sorry-day-looms-for-councillors/

Then I discovered these articles about local councils today.  The Inner West Courier obtained confidential documents about alleged breaches of the code of conduct by Councillors during Strathfield Council meetings. http://inner-west-courier.whereilive.com.au/news/story/details-of-code-of-conduct-investigations-revealed/

The Inner West Courier also reported that the GM of Burwood Council is undergoing an ICAC hearing in relation to corrupt conduct. http://inner-west-courier.whereilive.com.au/news/story/burwood-council-tells-general-manager-not-to-come-back-until-icac-results/

Lastly, I found a stinging post from a resident on Street Corner about the goings-on during a Liverpool Council meeting in February 2010. http://www.streetcorner.com.au/news/showPost.cfm?bid=13566
