If you’d like to ask a question on the day of the meeting, submit your question in writing to the question box in the Council Chamber. Submit your question before the start of the meeting.
Members of the public can attend Council meetings in person. We have reviewed our Council meeting practices to ensure we provide a safe environment for Councillors, staff and the community at meetings. Council meetings will continue to be live streamed and we encourage you to follow the meeting on our Facebook page (even if you don’t have a Facebook account) or website. The live stream is not interactive. Any comments or private messages directed to us while the stream is live will not be presented to Council or have a bearing on the conduct of the meeting.
Other temporary changes to our Council meetings:
Public Question Time – At this time, anyone wanting to ask a question of Council should submit their question via email by 5.00pm on the Monday before the meeting. You will have the opportunity to attend the meeting and read out your question or you can have your question read out by our CEO.
What happens if we cannot answer your question?
We might not be able to provide a meaningful answer to your question. If this happens, we may take the question on notice and we’ll provide you with a written response.
We also have guidelines for the conduct of Public Question Time.
