Council Meetings

Council Meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month from January through to November. The December Council Meeting is held in Greenbushes and the date is determined each year in January and is dependant upon when Christmas occurs. Meetings commence at 5.30pm.

All Council Meetings are open to the public and there is provision for ‘Public Question Time’ and Deputations/Presentations at the commencement of each meeting.

Council’s Local Laws, Strategy, Policy & Organisation Development Standing Committee is held at 5.30pm on the second Thursday in each month. Although this Committee has no delegated authority and hence can only make recommendations to Council, the meeting is open to the public. There is no provision for members of the public to address the Committee.

Every two years the Council will determine if it will appoint any Management or Advisory Committees. Management Committees have limited delegated authority and are open to the public. Advisory Committees have no delegated authority and therefore are not open to the public.

All Council and Committee meetings are held in the Council Chambers unless otherwise advertised. The Council Chambers is situated alongside the Main Hall at 1 Steere Street, Bridgetown.
