WITH a raised voice and pointed finger, an aggressive Fraser Coast Mayor said he has "had a gutful' and warned councillors to cut out their destructive comments.
Mayor Gerard O'Connell told the Chronicle a critical meeting on Monday would produce "robust discussion" about Fraser Coast Opportunities.
"I'm frustrated and annoyed that it gets to this stage," he said.
"It just can't continue.
"We need to get unity of purpose for the good of the region."
While Cr O'Connell recognised a handful of councillors were causing the FCO problems, he didn't directly expose them.
"I'm loath at this stage to name the four councillors," he said.
However, he offered a veiled threat to identify them.
"My call to all councillors is from that meeting on Monday, we need to guarantee the success of our region or we'll ensure that the voters understand that we've got to have people who are committed for the prosperity of this place.
"I've really had a gutful of innuendo and comment that destroys not only the council entity but the very entity that just 12 months ago we put faith in (FCO)."
Cr O'Connell called the meeting for Monday for councillors to "sit down professionally and have a discussion about unifying our purpose".
"Personally I've had it up to here with the unnecessary denigration of council," he said,
"This is for the future.
"I'm not interested in political or personal agendas."
Cr O'Connell also said both sides of the fence, FCO and the council, needed to work and communicate together better.
