Ipswich Comms Feud: Paul Pisasale Refuses To Meet With Police Minister Jo-ann Miller

Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale has refused to meet with Police Minister Jo-Ann Miller and accused her of being out of touch with her local community over suspended plans to close a police communications centre in the city.

After his public criticism of the plans, Ms Miller said the mayor should “stick with curbing (sic) and channelling” and the mayor pleaded for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to step in.

A day later, his wish was granted when Ms Palaszczuk pulled rank and ordered more consultation before a final decision was made.

While Cr Pisasale was somewhat placated by the Premier’s intervention, he refused to meet with Ms Miller and Police Commissioner Ian Stewart on Thursday as tensions continued to simmer.
