As the suspended Armidale Regional Council implodes, the amount of ratepayers' money beging spent on legal fees has come to light.
That case saw the council try to prevent five councillors from voting to terminate the CEO's contract.
It comes after a dramatic week inside the council office, which saw several departures announced, including that of the CEO.
Late last week, now former mayor Simon Murray explained why he resigned from council.
His resignation was one of four, which started when CEO Susan Law was the first to announce she was going, early in the week.
Then deputy mayor Libby Martin submitted her resignation, before the mayor announced he was departing.
Administrator Viv May was quick to announce an interim general manager to replace Ms Law, with the news coming on Thursday that the former General Manager of Sutherland Council John Rayner has been appointed to the position of Acting General Manager. He will start in late August.
Away from the council, the city's air quality was again making news, when a reading rated the air in Armidale as twice as bad as Sydney's.
But it hasn't been all bad news.
Professor Myfanwy Maple and her team from the University of New England have submitted a groundbreaking report which will help inform the federal government's suicide prevention policy.
