Council Meetings

Council continues to monitor Australian Government and NSW Health Orders relating to COVID-19 to ensure that our WHS obligations are met for staff and Councillors while also minimising risk to our community.
Consistent with directions for non-essential gatherings and meetings, commencing immediately the functioning of all Council, Standing and Advisory Committee meetings will be modified as follows: 

  • Members of the public will not be permitted to attend meetings
  • Any speaker wishing to address a Committee or the Council, will not be permitted to attend in person, however will be required to register in the usual manner
  • If a speaker would like to have a submission read aloud to a meeting, a written submission must be received by Council staff by 12 noon on the day of the meeting
  • A Council staff member will read each submission to the meeting, identifying the name of the person who made the submission
  • All Committee and Council meetings will continue to be webcast
  • Social distancing guidelines of 1.5m separation between ALL Councillors and support staff in attendance will be implemented

Council meets regularly to make decisions for the local government area. Meetings are open to the public and residents can register to speak on any item on the agenda. To lodge a request to speak at a Council or Committee Meeting, complete the Request to Speak at Council Meeting form.

Committees and Panels

On 4 October 2017, Council resolved to establish the following Committees which will be held on the second Monday of the month:

Effective immediately (and until further notice), all future Council and Committee Meetings will be held in the Dragon Room to enable compliance with WHS obligations and social distancing requirements. As a result, the scheduling of Committee Meetings has been adjusted as follows;

  • 6.00pm: Community and Culture Committee
  • 6.30pm: Assets and Infrastructure Committee
  • 7.00pm: Finance and Governance Committee
  • 7.30pm: Environment and Planning Committee

In addition Advisory Committees have been established for:

The role of the committees is to provide specialist knowledge on a specific topic or issue and assist Council to make decisions on matters in the Georges River area.
