Council Meeting: 27 February 2024

Council Chamber Civic Centre

Council will hold its scheduled February Council Meeting on Tuesday 27 February, 2024 at 6pm. The meeting will be held in-person at the Golden Plains Civic Centre and will be open to the public.

The meeting will also be livestreamed and accessible to the public on this page and on Council's YouTube channel. Public presentations, questions, and submissions will be able to be made both in-person and virtually through Zoom.

Attend Meeting

All council meetings are open to the public to either attend in person or view via livestream, with the exception of when the Council decides to close the meeting to the public (in-camera meetings) in certain circumstances. Attending council meetings can be a good way to understand how Council makes decisions.

While council meetings are an opportunity to observe the Council at work, they are not the place for members of the public to informally address councillors.

Public Question Time

Council invites members of the public to ask questions on any Council related matters and 30 minutes is set aside at each Council meeting to ask questions of the Council. If you have a question to ask at a council meeting, it must be submitted in writing by 10am of the day of the meeting. A maximum of two questions may be asked by each person.

If your question relates to Council services or operations, please consider instead submitting your request by contacting Council’s Customer Experience team via phone on 03 5220 7111, by email to [email protected], or by visiting one of Council's Customer Hubs. 

The person who submitted the question, or their representative, must be present at the meeting or when possible and arranged in advance, join the meeting online via Microsoft Teams to ask their question. 

Options for submitting a question include:

  • Complete an online form;
  • Submit a form by email to [email protected]; or 
  • Deliver a form to the Council Offices
