Coun­cil meet­ing dates to change

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

COTTES­LOE Coun­cil meet­ings pre­vi­ously held on Mon­day in the fourth week of each month will now be held monthly at 7pm on Tues­days in 2016.

At the De­cem­ber 15 meet­ing, coun­cil­lors agreed the trial would also re­place com­mit­tee meet­ings with briefing ses­sions for all coun­cil­lors at 6pm on the Tues­day of the se­cond week of each month.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Mat Hum­frey said the change would im­prove ef­fi­ciency and bring Cottes­loe in line with the meet­ing dates of other coun­cils.

An­swer­ing claims pub­lic and coun­cil­lors’ agen­das could be dif­fer­ent, Mr Hum­frey said the pub­lic agenda could be “briefer” be­cause it may not in­clude re­peated coun­cil­lors’ in­for­ma­tion, such statu­tory law.
