Cities hold­ing AGMs next week

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

THE cities of Joon­dalup and Wan­neroo will hold their an­nual gen­eral meet­ings of electors next week.

Joon­dalup will hold its electors AGM on Tues­day. It will start at 5.30pm in the coun­cil cham­ber at the Joon­dalup Civic Cen­tre, be­fore the coun­cil brief­ing sched­uled for 6.30pm.

The agenda will in­clude the pre­sen­ta­tion of the 2017-18 an­nual re­port, which the coun­cil unan­i­mously ac­cepted at last week’s coun­cil meet­ing, be­fore res­i­dents can ad­dress the coun­cil and move mo­tions.

At last year’s AGM, a res­i­dent asked if the City would con­sider hold­ing fu­ture AGMs at 7pm be­cause 5.30pm made it dif­fi­cult to at­tend “given peo­ple are still work­ing, or com­mut­ing from work or at­tend­ing to fam­ily ar­range­ments”.

Mayor Al­bert Ja­cob said the re­quest would be con­sid­ered for the 2018 meet­ing.

A coun­cil doc­u­ment said the AGM had been held at 5.30pm be­fore a coun­cil brief­ing in 2014 and 2016 and be­fore a coun­cil meet­ing in 2013, 2015 and 2017, which had “re­sulted in an im­proved elec­tor turnout com­pared to pre­vi­ous years”.

Wan­neroo will hold its electors AGM from 6.30pm on Mon­day at the civic cen­tre on Dun­de­bar Road.
