At this time, Council meetings will proceed and remain open to the public, however you are encouraged to view the meetings via Council's telecast rather than in person. Attendees at the meeting will be requested to maintain social distancing and not approach Councillors or staff.

Public question time
Question time forms are provided at Council meetings and at the links below if you wish to raise an issue with Councillors and/or Council staff. Council adopted a new Meeting Procedure Local Law on 14 October 2019 and the public now has the choice to present their own questions to Council or have them read out by a Council officer at each Council meeting.
Statement – Coronavirus (COVID-19)
As per advice received from the Federal and State Governments regarding public gatherings and social distancing, the Council Meeting to be held on Tuesday 14 April 2020 will proceed and remain open to the public. However, we encourage all members of the public to view the meeting via Council’s live webcast rather than attend the meeting in person.
To save time, you can download the question time form and bring it to the meeting or submit your questions online.
Please click here to download Council Meeting Public Question Time Guidelines.
If submitting this form at the Council meeting, it must be submitted by 7pm. If submitting the form online, it must be submitted by 12 noon on the day of the Council meeting. (See page 2 of the form for requirements that apply under Council's current Meeting Procedure Local Law).
Petitions and joint letters
Council’s current Meeting Procedure Local Law outlines the requirements for petitions should a member of the public wish to submit one for tabling at a Council meeting. For a petition to be accepted it must:
- be in legible and permanent writing (i.e no grey lead pencil that can be erased)
- not be defamatory, indecent or objectionable in language or content
- not relate to matters beyond the powers of Council (note, if requests are received regarding matters outside the power of Council we will forward onto the relevant authority on behalf of the petitioner)
- bear the whole of the petition or request upon each page of the petition (i.e. the details of what the request is for must be on each page that has signatures not just the first page)
- consist of single pages of paper and must not be pasted, stapled or pinned or otherwise affixed to any other paper
For more information see pages 14 and 15 of the Meeting Procedure Local Law (PDF - 748KB).
