Public Questions

Councillor signing document in Council Chambers

Overview

Each Council Meeting agenda includes an allotted time to respond to questions from members of the public. 

If you are able to provide advance notice of the question(s) you intend to raise at a Council meeting, officers will endeavour to provide a full and detailed response to you at the meeting.

Questions without notice can still be asked, however if additional research is required, your question will be taken on notice and a written response will be sent to you. A copy of the question and answer will be included in the agenda of the next Council Meeting. 

Council Meetings Conducted via Teleconference

Questions for these meetings will be taken on notice and a written response provided following the meeting and once the necessary research has been undertaken.

Questions for these meetings must be submitted up to one hour before the respective meeting.
