Procedure for Question Time at Committee Meetings

The Local Government Act 1995 requires that a minimum of 15 minutes is provided at the beginning of the meeting for question time from members of the public.

The procedure for asking a question is as follows:

  1. On the form above, state you name and address and indicate the item on the agenda or matter about which you wish to ask a question.  Questions may be submitted on any subject provided they relate to:
    (i)    a matter affecting the Town;
    (ii)   the purpose of the meeting, if asked at a Special Council meeting;
    (iii)  the function of the committee, if asked at a committee meeting.
  2. Written questions are preferred.  Once at the meeting Council Meeting Question Time forms are available, on which you can write your question and hand it to a staff member who will pass it to the person presiding at the meeting.
  3. Verbal questions may be accepted at the discretion of the person presiding at the meeting.
  4. Questions may be answered verbally or alternatively if an answer is not known, in writing at a later date.  A summary of questions and answers will be recorded in the minutes.
  5. The presiding member may, at his or her discretion, reject any question that reflects adversely upon the character and/or actions or may be deemed to be offensive towards any member or officer of the Council.
  6. Verbal questions will be limited to three minutes per person, except by consent of the person presiding at the meeting.
  7. No debate or discussion will be permitted on any question or answer.
