Meeting Procedures

Council-meetingCouncil has a local law which provides for the proper conduct of Council's democratic functions.

At its meeting on 20 December 2011, Council formally adopted the doc format Meeting Procedures Local Law No 1 of 2011 (202.00kB)

This local law regulates:

  • the election of the Mayor and the appointment of Councillors to internal and external bodies
  • proceedings of Ordinary and Special Council meetings
  • proceedings of meetings of Special Committees
  • the use of Council's common seal. 

This local law will not come into effect until a public notice is placed in the Government Gazette in January 2012.

The new law replaces a previous local law for meeting procedures which had been in place since 2002.
