In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency, and pursuant to section 302B of the Local Government Act 1999 and the Electronic Participation in Council Meetings Notice (No 1) 2020, Council meetings, Committee meetings and Informal Gatherings are now able to take place by electronic means, being a virtual meeting room.
Accordingly, Council, at a Special Meeting held on 6 April 2020, revised its:
- Code of Practice – Access to Meetings and Documents
- Code of Practice – Access to Meeting Procedures
- Informal Gatherings Policy
To satisfy the requirement that meetings be conducted in a place open to the public, Council and Committee meetings will be live streamed via YouTube. A direct link to the live stream will be placed on Council’s website prior to each Council and Committee meeting. Alternatively, click here to visit Council’s YouTube Channel.
The ability for electronic participation in Council meetings and Informal Gatherings will cease 28 days after all relevant state emergency declarations are revoked.
Council is taking every precaution to protect the well being of the wider community and remains committed to prioritising the health and safety of its residents, Elected Members and staff. Tackling COVID-19 means making sacrifices to reduce the risk of the virus spreading and to keep vulnerable people safe.
