About Council meetings

The central decision-making process of Council happens in Council meetings, which are attended by all Moreland Councillors. The Mayor is the chair of the meeting.

The Chief Executive Officer and members of the executive team also attend Council meetings, to provide information or advice when called upon by Council.

Regular meetings of Council are called 'Ordinary meetings'. 'Special meetings' of Council are also held occasionally, for matters such as the election of the Mayor or to consider matters of an urgent nature that cannot wait until the next Ordinary meeting of Council.

Council meetings are open to the community and citizens are encouraged to attend Council meetings to play their part in local governance. The Council Meeting Procedure Local Law (DOC 2Mb) outlines the procedures governing Council meetings.

Public question time

Council meetings provide citizens with an opportunity to ask questions of Councillors and to raise issues for Council to consider in its decision-making process.

Moreland has made a commitment to provide up to 30 minutes of each Ordinary Council meeting for residents to ask questions.

It is important that residents understand the procedures around public question time. For more information, see Public Question Time form and guidelines (DOC 64Kb).

Upcoming Council meetings

Council meetings are held in the Council Chamber, Moreland Civic Centre, 90 Bell Street, Coburg, 7 pm on the second Wednesday of each month.
