Public Questions

Do you have a question you’d like Council to address at one of our monthly Ordinary Council meetings?

While members of the gallery aren’t able to speak to Councillors during formal monthly meetings, there is a simple form you can fill out to have your question asked during a meeting, which can be found below.

Once you’ve filled out the form, just email it to at least 24 hours prior to a scheduled meeting. You can also submit a question in writing prior to the end of a Council meeting.

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 public questions and responses will be documented in the Council minutes.

Please note under section 44(a) of Council’s Local Law No. 1 (Conduct of Meetings), Council is not obligated to respond to questions which are intended to be unduly derogatory, defamatory or embarrassing to any Councillor, member of staff, ratepayer or member of the public.
