Meeting procedure local law and community participation time reviews
Baw Baw News By William PJ Kulich // 14:02, Tuesday 24 March 2015
COUNCILLORS unanimously approved the adoption of the revised Meeting Procedure Local Law at their 10 March meeting.
First published in the 13 March edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.
A review of the document, which underpins council meeting operation, was required to be conducted two years after it came into operation.
The review was conducted in-house. A full version of the revised local law with modifications marked was published in the meeting minutes.
Drouin ward councillor Tricia Jones said the laws made a “platform that guides us” and added she was pleased councillor behaviour meant differences of opinion were “dealt with appropriately.”
Community participation time review
ADOPTED after the meeting procedure local law review was the community participation time review.
A council officer report presented to councillors said there was no chance of community impact in the changes “because the amendments made reflect minor grammatical corrections and internal advertising process improvements.”
Warragul ward councillor Mikaela Power said the review also maintained compatibility with the procedure local law.
