Council Meetings are generally held on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month commencing at 7:00 pm.
COVID 19 has changed the way Council Meetings are currently held. The Minister has allowed Council Meetings to be conducted offsite from the Council Chambers with Councillors accessing the Meeting from their homes, provided the public can access the live Meeting. In line with this directive, Council Meetings are currently being held remotely using Zoom Audio Video conferencing technology and streamed live on the Council Facebook page.
Members of the Public Attending a Meeting
Council Meetings are conducted in accordance with the Code of Meeting Practice. Due to Covid-19 Council meetings are currently being livestreamed on Facebook. Comments on Facebook made by the public during the meeting will be moderated. The live stream will be stopped during Closed Council (confidential section) and recommenced after Open Council resumes. The audio recording of the Council Meeting will be placed on Council’s website (as per current practice) the following day and the visual recording will be available to view on Facebook for a limited time.
Members of the Public Addressing a Meeting
Due to the COVID 19 measures put in place, members of the public can address Council either by attending the Council Meeting at the Council Chambers and presenting to the Mayor (in person) and to Councillors (online) or submit their comments in writing by 12 noon on the day of the Council Meeting. Comments or submissions received will be read out at the meeting during deliberation of the item following approval by the Mayor. In accordance with Council’s Code of Meeting Practice, public addresses must be in respect to matters on the meeting agenda.
