Hilton Grugeon apology

On May 24, an individual posted a comment on the Maitland Mercury's Facebook page which made an allegation against Mr Hilton Grugeon in connection with the Maitland City Council's approval of a housing plan at a site in East Maitland. 

The Maitland Mercury had no role in the posting of that unfounded comment and regrets that it was made.

The Maitland Mercury unreservedly apologises to Mr Grugeon.
