Public Question Time

You are able to ask questions of Council at Ordinary and Special Meetings of Council and Agenda Briefing Forums. Find out about public question time and how to submit a question below.

About Public Question Time

Public question time allows you to participate in local government by asking questions of Council in relation to issues affecting the City. It also assists the City in identifying issues of importance to the community and assists the public to be better informed about how the City is governed.

To ensure time allocated to public question time at each meeting is effectively and equitably used, we have developed a policy setting out how public question time will be managed. We encourage you to read the Public Question Time at Council or Committee Meeting Policy before submitting your question/s.

How to Submit a Question

Please submit your question/s by the deadlines below:
  • Ordinary Meetings of Council and Agenda Briefing Forums: 2.00pm the Wednesday prior to the meeting
  • Special Meetings of Council: three clear business days before the meeting.

To ensure you submit your question/s on time, view upcoming meeting dates.

Guidance on Submitting your Question

Questions at Agenda Briefing Forums or Special Meetings of Council must relate to matters on the agenda. Questions at Ordinary Meetings of Council can be about other topics but must be regarding issues related to or affecting the City.

Certain information will not be provided via public question time and further details can be found in the Public Question Time at Council or Committee Meeting Policy.

You don't have to wait for a Council meeting to ask a question. Contact our customer relations team who can assist you with general enquiries and requests.
