Council meetings are held on the fourth TUESDAY of the month (except January), commencing at 5.00pm.

Any changes are advertised in the local papers.

Special Council Meetings are held as required. These will also be advertised.

Meetings are open to ratepayers and residents who are more than welcome to attend.

Public Question Time – How To Ask A Question

Public Question Time is at the commencement of each meeting where members of the public can ask questions of the Council. This time is available only for asking questions, and not statements or preamble.

Complex questions that may require research should be submitted as early as possible in order to allow the Shire sufficient time to prepare a response.

All questions are to be written with name and address and submitted to the Shire President at the Council Meeting or prior to the meeting.

If questions cannot be readily answered during the meeting, the Council will take the question on notice and will respond by letter. The response to the question will also be included in the agenda and minutes of the next Council Meeting.
