Meeting Participation During COVID-19 Restrictions

    Due to Australian Government COVID-19 restrictions, the Local Government Act 2020 has been revised to allow Councillors to participate in meetings by electronic means. This means that Council Meetings will be held virtually via a software platform called WebEx.

    Members of the public can join the WebEx meeting virtually and ask their questions live during the meeting. The WebEx meeting can be joined via internet connection on any device, or dialled into via phone. For privacy reasons, only audio will be heard, video will not be displayed at any time during the meeting.

    Once a Wish to Speak form has been submitted a  Council Officer will contact the submitter to discuss the process for meeting participation. When completing the form please provide a full summary of the questions and/or statements to be contributed to the meeting.

    *Submitters who cannot contribute to the meeting via WebEx may have an officer read their statement on their behalf. Please note statements may be summarised when read by an officer, to assist with meeting process.
