Important Notice regarding Public Attendance

On 31 March 2020, Local Government Minister Stephan Knoll issued the first COVID-19 related emergency variations to the Local Government Act 1999 – in the form of the Electronic Participation in Council Meetings Notice (No 1) 2020. This Notice allows council meetings to be conducted by electronic means.

From 7 April 2020 and onwards (while COVID-19 social distancing measures are required), Council meetings have been held with Council Members participating via electronic means.

With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, Council can now accommodate up to 11 members of the public in the Chambers during Council meetings.

In order to manage these limited spots a booking system has been created - residents are asked to contact Council's customer service team on 1300 785 277 or email council@coorong.sa.gov.au to secure a place in the public gallery.

Upcoming Council meetings will also be recorded and livestreamed, ensuring the meetings are accessible to all members of the public. Meeting recordings will be uploaded to Council's YouTube channel.

Members of the public who would like to submit a question during Public Question Time are asked forward questions through to Council in writing by midday the day before the scheduled meeting, so that answers can be provided to all questions submitted.
