Public question time
The Shire encourages public participation in its decision-making process through the asking of questions at Council meetings or Briefing Sessions.
Questions to a Briefing Session must relate to a matter listed on the Briefing Session Agenda. Questions to a Council meeting can relate to any matter the Shire has responsibility for.
Due to the public health state of emergency that has been declared across the State of Western Australian in respect of COVID-19, written questions can only be submitted to Council meetings and Briefing Sessions that are determined to be held by electronic means.
Members of the public wishing to submit a question may make a written request to the Chief Executive Officer by 10am on the day of the scheduled Agenda Briefing session by using the form below.
The Local Government Act authorises local councils to make appropriate by-laws for local people and communities. It is important for these to provide long term solutions rather than temporary relief to minor problems.
The role of the Council is to provide public services, make wise decisions in the interests of the community in a balanced way for the greatest benefit, to initiate, coordinate and serve as a catalyst for local effort, and to represent the community.
The Council is currently made up of 13 Elected Members, one of whom is the Shire President, and all are elected by the people. Elections are held every four years, the next one due October 2019.
Council also conducts annual community meetings each year.
