Council Meetings

Council Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month, commencing at 5.00pm, and all members of the public are welcome to attend. Council Meetings are held at the Shire Administration Office in the Council Chambers, and a provision for 'public question time' is allocated at the beginning of each meeting. Any items for consideration by Council must be with the Chief Executive Officer 8 days prior to the Meeting. This allows for the item to be included in the Agenda, which provides Councillors time to consider the matter and conduct any research required. Late items generally will not be considered.

Electors Meeting

In accordance with the Local Government Act 1995 s. 5.26 a general meeting of electors is held every year. This meeting must be held within 56 days of Council's acceptance of the Annual Report for the previous financial year. Practically this means that the Shire's auditors finalise their audit of the previous financial year's accounts in October or November, staff prepare the Annual Report, which is presented to Council in December, and the Electors Meeting is then scheduled anytime within the 56 days following acceptance.

Matters to be discussed at a general electors meeting are, firstly, the contents of the Annual Report for the previous financial year and then any other general business. Members of the public are welcome to ask questions.

Public Meetings

From time to time Council will call a public meeting on an item of community interest. Wide advertising is given to such meeting.
