Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Council Meetings
As part of our efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 we have reviewed our Council meeting practices to ensure we provide a safe environment for Councillors, staff and the community. Pursuant to the Local Government Act 2020, Council meetings will be held virtually until further notice. Physical attendance by members of the public at Council meetings is currently not permitted. Council meetings will continue to be live streamed and we encourage you to follow the meeting on our Facebook page (you can view the livestream on our Facebook page even if you don’t have a Facebook account). 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.
Council acknowledges that in the lead up to its general elections, it will not make any decision that would, or could be perceived to, inappropriately bind an incoming Council or affect the outcome of the elections.
As per our Election Period Policy, Council will hold an Ordinary meeting in October to consider routine administrative matters and the Annual Report. There will be limitations on the conduct of the meeting such as no public question time, tabling of petitions and Councillor question time.
