Council meetings and standing committees


In addition to general meetings, council has adopted the following three standing committees:

  1. Finance and Infrastructure standing committee
  2. Leadership and Governance standing committee
  3. Communities standing committee

Each of the standing committees are made up of the mayor and five councillors (one of whom acts as chair).

Meetings are held in the council chambers, corner of Egerton and Borilla Streets, Emerald (unless otherwise advised). Meetings are open to the public with the exception of items discussed in a ‘closed’ session.
