Council Meetings


With the current Coronavirus emergency situation, members of the public are asked not to attend in the gallery at council meetings until future notice.  

Members of the public can still ask questions as part of Public Participation.  Questions can be submitted online and will be read by the Chairperson during Public Participation.  For more information on how to submit questions visit here.     

Future Council Meetings will be streamed live, recorded and published online to meet the requirements of social distancing.  The public is able to view the livestreams via our website at


Meeting Dates

Council generally meets at 6:00pm on the third Tuesday of each month (with the exception of June and December which will be held on the second Tuesday).  

Details of Council meeting dates and times are published in the Pyrenees Advocate and Maryborough Advertiser Noticeboard at least one week prior to the meeting.

It is Council election year this year (2020) so no Ordinary meeting will be held in October.
