Pre-meeting Briefing Sessions will have an agenda and are open to the public (except for items that meet the requirements of section 10A of the Act).

    Public Forums

    Members of the public have the opportunity to address the Council prior to Ordinary and Extraordinary Council meetings. The forum allows for verbal submissions/presentations from community members on items of business to be considered at the meeting. Conditions are outlined in AlburyCity's Code of Meeting Practice.

    Community Forums

    Community Forums will be held as scheduled in order to provide the community with an opportunity to address councillors on items of significant community interest. Details regarding Community Forums are outlined in AlburyCity's Code of Meeting Practice.

    To apply to make a presentation at a Community Forum, please email us.

    Closed Meetings

    There are occasions when Council needs to discuss items of a confidential nature. The reason for confidentiality is included in the agenda and summarised prior to discussion.

    Under the Local Government Act 1993, if the Council moves into “closed” session, due to confidentiality, all members of the gallery including media must leave the Chamber.

    Pre-meeting Briefing Sessions are also held from time to time and these are open to the public, with the exception of “closed” sessions when confidential items are listed.

    Under clause 14.9 of the Code of Meeting Practice, members of the public can make a submission in writing outlining the reasons why they believe the meeting should remain open to the public and not closed.
