Ordinary Council Meeting Schedule 2021

Public Notice - COVID-19 - Electronic Participation in Council Meetings

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.

Special Council Meetings are called by the Mayor, or three (3) or more Council Members, as required. When a Special Meeting is called, the Chief Executive Officer will display a Notice of Meeting on the Council website, and at the Mallala Principal Office and Two Wells Service Centre.

Members of the public are welcome to attend Council Meetings.

One of the most important functions undertaken by Council Members is attending Council Meetings, and participating in the decision-making process. Meetings also allow the Council Members to decide the Council's policy direction and make decisions on other statutory matters.

Decisions made at a Council Meeting provide the direction and authority for the Council's ongoing operations. These decisions give direction to the Chief Executive Officer, who in turn directs the Council staff to implement those decisions.

Council is a body corporate and can only make decisions by resolution. This means a motion must to be put to a properly-convened meeting and can only be passed by a majority vote. With the exception of the Mayor, who chairs the meeting, all members present at a council meeting vote on every motion put to the meeting. The Mayor has a casting vote only if the voting is tied.
