Procedures for Public Question Time

In accordance with the Local Government (Administration) Regulations, a maximum of 15 minutes is made available for public question time at each Council meeting. During question time, members of the public are given the opportunity to ask a question relating to the ordinary business of the Shire of Boyup Brook/and or the function of Council.

The Shire encourages the practice of questions being supplied in writing at least 5 working days prior to the meeting, particularly if a detailed response is preferred.  This will provide the opportunity for the question to be responded to at the meeting.  If an answer is not available at the meeting, the response will be provided as soon as possible after the meeting.  A summary of the question and answer will be recorded in the minutes of the Council meeting.

At the Shire we are committed to involving the public in the decision-making process. The ability to ask a question at our Council meetings is viewed as an integral part of the public's ability to participate.
