The Dunedin City Council has launched an investigation into its Citipark/Citifleet unit. The unit is responsible for the council’s parking services and also for its management of its fleet of vehicles. Council chief executive Dr Sue Bidrose would not be drawn on the reason for the investigation which is being carried out by accountancy firm Deloitte. The investigation had just started and was being incorporated into a wider review of key accounting practices within the council, which was initiated last year. She said it would be inappropriate to release further details, such as what has sparked the probe. A council spokesman confirmed the unit’s manager Brent Bachop died suddenly last month. Dunedin police said his death had been referred to the coroner.
