Amendments to the 2024 Council Meeting Schedule

Due to proposed changes to the Local Government (Electoral) Regulations 2020, the Victorian Electoral Commission has advised that current election timelines are no longer viable.

This is due to changes in enrolment entitlements, population growth, increased wards, more candidates, and reduced mail services.

To accommodate this, the Council’s caretaker period will start at 12pm on 17 September 2024, requiring changes to the September meeting schedule.

At the Council meeting on 18 June 2024, Council resolved to amend to the meeting schedule for September and November 2024, and authorise the Chief Executive Officer to further amend the meeting schedule for September, October and November 2024 should special circumstances arise.

Month Activity Date Time
September Council Meeting 10 September 7pm
November  Swearing in of new Council 6 November  6pm
November Election of Mayor/Deputy Mayor 19 November 6pm 

Council will resume its regular meeting cycle in December 2024.
