If you do not provide the personal information your question will not meet the requirements of the Local Law and Council will not consider it or answer it as a public question.

Public questions, by their nature, are a public and transparent means of making enquiries of Council. Council is obliged under the Local Government Act 1989 (Vic) to prepare public minutes of each Council meeting which accurately reflect the business and proceedings of each meeting. Additionally, clause 232 of the Local Law specifically requires public questions which are read at a meeting, and the answers given, to be recorded in the minutes of that meeting.
