Virtual council meetings

On 23 April 2020, the Victorian Parliament passed emergency COVID-19 legislation (COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Act 2020) enabling ‘virtual’ council meetings to be held between 1 May 2020 and 2 November 2020.

The first meeting of Council under the new provisions was held on Tuesday 26 May 2020.

The public are encouraged to watch virtual meetings through live streaming which is available on Council’s website. A recording of the live stream will be made available on Council’s website following the meeting.

Council continues to accept public questions submitted in accordance with its Governance Rules(PDF, 2MB).  Due to COVID-19 and the meeting being held virtually, public questions will be read out by the Chief Executive Officer. Refer to public question time below for more information about submitting a question.
