Council Meetings During COVID-19 Pandemic – Hybrid Council Meetings

In response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the State government has recently introduced temporary measures that allow for virtual Council meetings to be conducted.  The change to legislation ensures the safe continuation of local government decision making for both Councillors and the community.

In light of this, for the foreseeable future, Council Meetings will be conducted in person and live streamed to Council’s Facebook page. The table above will be updated to indicate when the public can attend a meeting in person.
