Community Questions

Do you have a question you would like Council to address at one of our monthly Ordinary Meetings of Council?

Members of the gallery are not permitted to engage Councillors in conversation during formal Council Meetings, however there is a simple form you can fill out to have your question asked during a meeting, which can be found below.

For your question to be considered, the below form must be submitted by 4:00pm the day prior to the Council Meeting. The form allows for only one question to be submitted at a time. If you have a second question, you will need to complete the form again.

If you are attending the meeting in person, you can also submit a question in writing before the end of Section 14 Management Reports.

We do our best to answer questions on the night, however if this isn’t possible, we will provide a written response within seven working days. All community questions and verbal responses will be documented in the minutes of the meeting.

In accordance with section 39(e) of Council’s Governance Rules, no more than two questions will be accepted from any person at any one meeting.

Additionally, Council will not accept questions considered malicious, defamatory, indecent, abusive, offensive, irrelevant, trivial or objectionable in language or substance. Questions will also not be considered if they relate to:

  • confidential information as defined in the Local Government Act 2020;
  • the personal hardship of any resident or ratepayer; or
  • any matter which the Council or the Chief Executive Officer considers would prejudice the Council or any person.
