Meeting Attendance

Council meetings allow the Mayor and Elected Members to decide the Council’s policy direction and make decisions on other statutory matters. These decisions are then implemented by Council staff. Council is a statutory body and can only make decisions by resolution, this is done by a motion being put to a meeting and then passed by a majority vote.

Council also holds Informal Gatherings and workshops to share information about specific topics on a monthly basis. These sessions are open to the public with the exception of confidential items, which will be considered at the end of the agenda and will be closed to the public. Community members are welcome to attend the open sessions, and observe proceedings as a member of the gallery. Council will notify the public when these workshops occur and what topics will be discussed by placement of notice on Council's noticeboard (Kingscote) and on the website. No decisions are made at these sessions, and thus no minutes taken. Any decisions will be made at a formal Council meeting. 

Attendance at Council Meetings and Informal Gatherings is an important aspect of a Councillors role in helping to serve the Community.

A record of attendance by Councillors at both Council Meeting and Informal Gatherings can be viewed here.
