Update: A change to our Council meetings
Council meetings will continue to be held on the scheduled dates below each month.
In accordance with the Victorian Government’s COVID-19 directives, all Council meetings will be closed to the public, however available to view online, until at least 26 April 2021.
Under the directives, Councillors have the option of meeting together in person, following social distancing and health and hygiene guidelines or holding a virtual meeting. Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), members of the public are unable to attend in person however all meetings will be livestreamed on Council’s YouTube page. The link to the livestream will be posted on the day of the meeting on Council’s social media and website. A summary of the decisions made at the meeting is also available on Council’s website the day after the meeting.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, any questions submitted for Public Question Time will be read out by the Chief Executive Officer as proxy (where appropriate), until further notice. All public presentations and submissions must be in written form and will be read out by the Mayor at the meeting. The maximum time limit of five minutes is still applicable.
