Public Question Time

Public question time is an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions about Council activities at an ordinary council meeting. Public question time includes a section for public questions with and without notice and limits any one speaker to a maximum of 3 minutes per question.

Public Questions with Notice

To submit a Question with Notice, please ensure up to 3 questions on any specific subject per person reaches us by Monday 5pm the week prior to the council meeting. For example: if the Council Meeting is being held on Tuesday, 16 January, your submission will need to be received by 5pm Monday, 8 January. If your submission misses the deadline, it will be held over to the following month.

If accepted, your question will be included in the meeting agenda and a response will either be provided at the scheduled meeting, or in writing in the following meeting’s agenda if further research or clarification is required.

The person asking the question does not need to attend the meeting for the question to be tabled.

Public Questions without Notice

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

Questions must be directed to the Chairperson 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 Public Question 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 Public Question Time.

To assist with the compilation of minutes, it would be appreciated if community members with prepared questions could please provide a copy via or at the meeting.
