Meetings, agendas & minutes

Council Meetings

Council meetings are held each month, generally the last Wednesday of each month commencing at 6pm. The meetings are held in our Council Chambers, 40 Main Street, Huonville. Agendas, reports and minutes are all available on our website.

COVID-19 Restrictions Removed

Members of the public are welcome to attend Council meetings and are no longer required to register their attendance. The capacity for our public gallery is 24 people, with seating being a ‘first come first serve’ basis. As part of ongoing COVID-19 safety management we ask that people do not attend if unwell or required to isolate and follow cough and personal hygiene measures. Meetings will continue to be live streamed so you can tune in from home.

Public Question Time

To ensure there are opportunities for public participation:

  • Questions can be asked for public question time by presenting these in writing to Council by 12pm the day prior to the meeting. All questions are to be submitted by following the link here.
  • Alternatively you can attend the meeting and ask your question in person.
  • As of 22 April 2022, questions received in writing by midday on Council Meeting day are continued to be treated as Questions without Notice. Your questions will be published on the Council website and included in the minutes of the Council Meeting. They will not be read out during the meeting.
  • Council will live stream and video record the meetings and will make the recording available for public viewing as soon as possible after the Council meeting.
  • Answers to questions lodged can be found in the Minutes or Public Question Time tab for the relevant month.

The COVID-19 situation is ever-changing and this page will be updated as new information comes to hand. We recommend that you check back on a regular basis to stay up to date on when and how meetings will be held.
