Council has rules which outline how meetings are held and conducted, called the Governance Rules. In recent years COVID-19 has changed how we all do business and how we conduct Council meetings. This has resulted in some proposed o changes to the Governance Rules to enable more flexibility in how we conduct our meetings, such as whether they can be held in person, online or a hybrid of the two.
Our Governance Rules guide the process for our meetings, how we record them, the election of the Mayor and Deputy Mayor and disclosures of conflict of interest and conduct of Council during the Election Period.
Council is now seeking the community’s views on the proposed changes to the Governance Rules. A four-week community consultation period commences on Wednesday 20 July through to 5pm on Wednesday 17 August. All submissions relating to the proposed changes should be addressed to the Co-ordinator Councillor Business.
Council will consider all submissions and the draft Governance Rules at its Meeting on 30 August 2022.
