Public Question Time

Our Council values what the community has to say and welcomes questions at each monthly meeting during Public Question Time.  Council meetings commence at 6pm and Public Question Time is addressed shortly after the introductory and procedural matters on the agenda.

Questions can be asked in writing prior to the meeting or in person during the meeting. To submit a written question, please notify the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) by 9am on the Monday prior to the meeting. This can be done in person at the Ulverstone Administration Centre/Penguin Service Centre or via email to exec@centralcoast.tas.gov.au. Please clearly indicate in the email that it is a question for the next Council meeting. 

The acceptance and content of questions that can be asked are subject to the Council’s Public Question Time Policy.  Responses to questions without notice will be answered by the chairperson (normally the Mayor).  The question/s may be referred to a Councillor, the CEO or a Director, or question/s may be taken on notice with a written response to be provided by the CEO within 10 working days.  Questions responded to at the meeting will be summarised in the Council meeting minutes.

Public Question Time is governed by the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015. Click below for more information on the conditions and procedures that apply to Public Question Time.
