Want to ask a question at Council meetings during public question time...?
Posted on 05 May, 2020
UPDATE: in order to make the publication of Council agenda items, public questions must be submitted in writing BEFORE COB the Wednesday prior to each upcoming Council meeting.
Alice Springs Town Council has been holding meetings via video conferencing over recent weeks.
- Question: So how does the community ask questions …?
- Answer: If you have a specific topic of enquiry for a meeting, either arising from the papers or another question relating to Council business, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by COB the WEDNESDAY prior to the relevant Council meeting the following week. These emails must be marked ‘Attention to the CEO’ to be raised at a Council meeting. The email also must include the meeting name and date (at which the item is to be raised), a brief outline or a specific question, plus contact details and full name of the community member to enable a response. This information will be recorded during the meeting and will form part of the meeting minutes. Responses from Council will be provided as soon as practicable, following the meeting.
- Question: So how does the community stay informed…?
- Answer: In order to ensure information continues to flow from Council meetings to the community, Council Officers have prioritised the uploading of recordings to Council’s website, including meeting minutes, as soon as practicable following the meeting: https://alicesprings.nt.gov.au/governance/meetings
