Council meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7pm, either at the Killara Centre in Camperdown (210-212 Manifold Street, behind the public library) or at a venue in one of the Shire’s five wards. Everybody is most welcome to attend the meetings, which usually end by 9pm.
Meetings consist of hearing reports from Council committees, considering recommendations from Council officers, and making decisions on a range of issues. Any matter that Council is required to consider in confidence will be heard after the public meeting. Matters may be heard in confidence if they meet the criteria established under Section 89 of the Local Government Act 1989; that is if they relate to personnel matters, the personal hardship of a resident or ratepayer, industrial or contractual matters, proposed developments, legal advice, matters affecting the security of Council property, or any other matter which Council considers would prejudice the Council or any person.

Members of the public may address Council in the Deputations and Presentations section of the meeting if they wish to address the Council on a submission or an issue under Section 223 of the Local Government Act, or if they have requested to address Council on an item in the Agenda and the Mayor has agreed to this.
Requests to address Council in the Deputations and Presentations section of the meeting must be received by 5pm on the day prior to the scheduled Ordinary Meeting of the Council. Presentations made to Council must not exceed five minutes each, although Councillors may ask questions after each presentation.

If you have a question or statement to make, you may do so at the Open Forum session at the end of each Ordinary Meeting of Council. At this time the Mayor will ask if there are any questions from the public gallery. Anyone with a question or statement should introduce themselves and then rise to speak. We encourage questions or statements to not exceed five minutes in length. If a question cannot be answered at the meeting, we undertake to provide an answer in writing as soon as possible after the meeting.
