Council Chambers is located in Stuart Street with Council Meetings commencing at 8.30am sharp – any member of the public is welcome to attend
The elected members of Council act as one body, dealing with the business of the Carnarvon local government area in accordance with relevant statutes, local laws and policies. As a body, Council meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month, except for in December where it meets on the third Tuesday, and not at all in January of each year, to deal with the business put before it.
Public Question Time
Limited time is set aside for the public to ask questions of the Council. Desirably, ideally questions should be submitted in writing at least 3 days before the Council meeting is to take place in order that a response can (hopefully) be provided at the meeting. All questions to Council are to be submitted on the Public Question Time Form and can be submitted to Council on the day of the meeting in person or if unable to attend, can be submitted by email to email@example.com.
Occasionally, Council may hold a special meeting outside of these times, especially where it is required to deal with an urgent matter of business. Notice of a Special Meeting of Council will be advertised in the Northern Guardian newspaper 7 days beforehand. Again, any member of the public is welcome to attend a Special Meeting of Council and ask questions of the Council within the allotted public question time.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE RECORDING OF COUNCIL MEETINGS IN ANY FORMAT IS PROHIBITED
