Meeting Dates for Council, Committees and Ward Forums
As a result of the Covid-19 ‘Delta’ Level 2 restrictions, the decision has been made to cancel the upcoming Ward Forum and Community Board meetings (Sept/Oct). This has been decided because, first and foremost, we have to keep ourselves and our communities safe. It is difficult to control participation, physical distancing constraints and movement for these meetings, and due to the requirements set out by the Government, this would pose a risk to everyone involved.
At this stage the Ward Forums will not be rescheduled, but Community Boards may be reassessed. We expect to be able to resume community meetings once we move to Alert Level 1 and will review this at the end of September, as Alert Level 2 looks like it will extend for some time.
Council Meeting - 23 September 2021 - Public Forum update
Unfortunately, due to the high level of interest around people wishing to speak in Public Forum at the upcoming Council meeting on Thursday, 23 September 2021, we have reached the limit of speakers for the time available.
Under Council’s ‘Standing Orders’ (rules for the conduct of the proceedings of meetings) Public Forum is a defined period of time at the beginning of the meeting. The standard allocated time is 30 minutes.
Our Public Forum time for this meeting has been extended to accommodate the eight registered speakers, who we feel confident will provide Elected members with a range of community viewpoints.
For further information, please email the Governance Services Team at Governanceservices@westernbay.govt.nz or phone 07 571 8008. Thank you.
