At the 27 April 2021 Council meeting, Council endorsed the ‘Written Public Questions to Council Guidelines’ set out in the Written Public Questions to Council Guidelines (PDF 155KB) and the reinstatement of the Public Participation section of the meeting. This will remain in place unless COVID-19 restrictions require changes to be implemented. Refer to the agenda page for further information.

As a member of the public, you can ask us questions at any time by submitting your question no later than 12 noon on the business day before the meeting.

Privacy

The personal information requested on this form is required under the Glen Eira City Council – Council Governance Rules (Governance Rules) and the Council guidelines ‘Written Public Questions to Council’ (Guidelines).

If you do not provide the personal information your question will not meet the requirements of the Governance Rules or Guidelines 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 2020 (Vic) to prepare public minutes of each Council meeting which accurately reflect the business and proceedings of each meeting. Additionally the Guidelines require public questions which are read at a meeting, and the answers given, to be recorded in the minutes of that meeting.

You may access personal information Council holds about you. Enquiries in the first instance should be directed to Council’s privacy officer at privacy@gleneira.vic.gov.au
