    Public Question Time

    All members of the community have a legislative right to ask questions at Council meetings.  Public Question Time provides an opportunity for the public to question Council about issues affecting local government and the community.  It also provides Council with the opportunity engage with the community and seek feedback on issues of importance.

    Questions asked during Public Question Time must pertain only to business of Council.  This includes any matter before Council at the meeting or any issue relating to the Shire.

    Here are some important things to remember when you prepare and deliver your question to Council:

    • Ensure your question is clear and concise
    • Do not phrase your question as a statement or personal opinion
    • Ensure your question is not of an offensive nature to any member of the public, the Council or employee of the Shire.

    A maximum of 20 minutes will be allowed for Public Question Time.  To ensure everyone is given equal and fair opportunity, questions will be limited to two per person if there are a number of people wishing to ask questions.

    The Shire President may nominate a Shire Officer to answer the question and may also determine that any complex questions requiring research be taken on notice and answered in writing.

    A summary of each question asked and the response given will be included in the minutes of the meeting.  

    Responses to questions taken on notice will be included in the agenda of the next ordinary meeting of Council.

    If you wish to ask a question, please submit it in writing to the Chief Executive Officer at least 24 hours prior to the meeting.
