Brisbane City Councillor Nick Hildebrandt has paid the full cost of a $7,722.45 fine for breaching the council bylaw that required him to report breaches of the bylaws.
Mr Hildebrands first appearance in court was on Thursday, March 6.
In a statement, Brisbane City Hall said:”The City of Brisbane Council will pay a $22,000 fine for breaches by Councillors Nick Hildegard and Chris Kelly of the City of Queensland Council.”
The fine, totalling $769.65, will be paid by the City’s own resources to the Council’s compliance unit.
The fine was levied in relation to the breaches of Council bylaws of March 1, 2017, when Mr Hildefields first appearance was in court.
