Murray Shire mayor Tom Weyrich has apologised to his Campaspe Shire counterpart Ian Maddison for comments one of his councillors made about the shire.
Cr Weyrich apologised to Cr Maddison at a Committee for Echuca Moama breakfast meeting yesterday.
His apology follows Cr Gavin Burke criticising Campaspe Shire and its ratepayers for not taking more action to get a second Murray River crossing in Echuca-Moama.
Cr Weyrich said he should not have allowed Cr Burke to continue with his tirade at a council meeting in Mathoura last week.
While Cr Weyrich said he mostly agreed with Cr Burke’s frustration, he did not believe Campaspe Shire should have been singled out.
‘‘As the mayor I should have stepped in and not let those comments continue, so I have apologised to Cr Maddison for not doing that,’’ he said.
‘‘I am not apologising for comments I made, because I do not believe I said anything disparaging about Campaspe Shire.
‘‘These comments do nothing to enhance the relationship between Campaspe and Murray shires.’’
