Revised Governance Rules 2020
The purpose of the Council’s Governance Rules 2020 is to outline guidelines for the Council to:
- consider and make decisions on any matter being considered by the Council fairly and on the merits; and
- institute decision making processes to ensure that any person whose rights will be directly affected by a decision of the Council is entitled to communicate their views and have their interests considered.
The amendments to the Local Government Act 2020 take effect on 2 September 2022 and Council’s Governance Rules 2020 are required to make provision for:
- holding meetings by electronic means; and
- requesting and approving attendance at Council meetings by electronic means.
