Council Meeting Schedule 2017/2018

Item 1

 

Purpose

To adopt a Council meeting schedule for 2017/2018.

Strategic / policy issues

The following directions contained in Maroondah 2040: Our Future Together and the Council plan 2017-2021 (Year 1: 2017-2018) provide the strategic framework that underpins the purpose in this report.

 

Outcome Area:  A well governed and empowered community

 

Our Vision:  Maroondah is an effectively empowered community that is actively engaged in Council decision making through processes that ensure their voice is heard and considered.  Council provides strong and responsive leadership, ensures transparent processes and works with the community to advocate and champion their needs.

 

Key Directions 2017 – 2018:

 

8.1       Provide enhanced governance that is transparent, accessible, inclusive and accountable

Background

Council in November last year set the meeting date for the Statutory Meeting of Council that culminates in the election of the Deputy Mayor and the Mayor.

 

It is necessary for Council to also set Council meeting dates for the remainder of 2017 - November and December – and for 2018 up to November - when an election for a new Mayor will occur. 

Issue / discussion

The proposed schedule is based upon the adopted practice of one Council meeting per month usually on the third Monday dependent upon Public Holidays and other Council commitments.
