Meeting Procedure Local Law

Consultation closed on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.

Council is proposing to adopt a new Meeting Procedure Local Law to incorporate changes in local government legislation and to reflect current governance practice at Wodonga City Council. The proposed Local Law is based on a model widely used by councils across Victoria.

The objectives of the Local Law are to:

a) Regulate and control the procedures governing the conduct of meetings of the council and of special committees appointed by the council;
b) Regulate and control the election of the Mayor, the Deputy Mayor (if one is appointed by council), and the chairpersons of any special committees;
c) Regulate and control the use of the council’s seal;
d) Promote and encourage community participation in the local government system;
e) Provide a mechanism through its formal meeting procedure to ensure effective and efficient council decisions are made in a manner which acknowledges the role of local government within the Australian system of Government;
f) Provide for the administration of the council’s powers and functions; and,
g) Provide generally for the peace, order and good government of the municipal district.

A Community Impact Statement has been prepared to inform the community about the proposed Local Law and to assist any member of the public who may wish to make a submission to the Council during the public consultation process required under the Local Government Act 1989.

The consultation period closed at 5pm on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
