Council Meetings - Dates and Locations

Council's meetings are open to members of the public and press and procedures are governed by the Local Government (Meetings Procedures) Regulations 2005 (the Regulations). Council does not operate on a committee system and all decisions are made by the Council as a whole.

Meetings are held at 1:30 pm on the third Tuesday of every month (see below for 2022 dates). A period of 30 minutes is set aside for a community input segment at which members of the public may present suggestions or ideas to Council or ask questions concerning any Council related activities.

Please note that all meetings will be held at the Windsor Community Precinct in Riverside until further notice, to allow for appropriate physical distancing measures.

Council's Agenda for each meeting is displayed on the website and at the Riverside and Beaconsfield offices from the Friday prior to the Council meeting. The Council Meeting Minutes are available on the website from the Thursday following the meeting.

Public Questions without Notice

Speakers are limited to a maximum of five minutes and three questions on any specific subject during Community Input Time at an ordinary council meeting. Speakers must state their name and address prior to asking their questions.

Questions must be directed to the Mayor who will answer or direct the question to the appropriate Councillor or Council Officer. If the information is unknown it will be taken on notice and responded to in writing within ten business days. A period of 30 minutes is allocated to Community Input Time at each meeting.

A question by any member of the public and an answer to that question are not to be debated. Questions without notice and their answers, if provided, will be recorded in the meeting minutes. Members of the public are unable to take part in the council meeting outside of Community Input Time.

To assist with the compilation of minutes, it would be appreciated if community members with prepared questions and statements could please provide a copy via wtc@wtc.tas.gov.au or at the meeting.
