Public Question Time at Council Meetings

All questions must be received by 12pm on the day prior to the Council meeting day. Questions received after this time will be referred to the following Council meeting.

Your name will be read out at the meeting and recorded in the minutes. You will be required to read out your question in person, and will be filmed doing so. If you are not present, your question will be referred to the appropriate officer for a formal written response.

The Chairperson will direct the question/s to the appropriate Council executive officer for response. Please note that citizens cannot ask further questions after their question has been addressed.
