Have your say: Draft Governance Rules

Strathbogie Shire Council is seeking input into an amended draft of the Governance Rules following proposed changes to the Election Period Policy in readiness for the October 2024 Local Government Elections.

The Governance Rules include:

  • Conflicts of interest processes
  • Mayor and Deputy Mayor and relevant committee chair election processes
  • Council meeting, Audit and Risk Committee and other delegated and community asset committee procedures
  • Election Period Policy.

The Governance Rules were presented for community input in April and May. Five submissions were received and some minor changes have been made incorporating the feedback.

More substantial changes have been made to the Election Period Policy to enable Council to conduct business that does not relate to electoral matters more effectively during this period.

As the Election Period Policy is included in the Governance Rules, any amendment to the Governance Rules requires further community engagement as required by Section 60 (4) of the Local Government Act 2020.

Submissions to the Draft Governance rules must be received by 5pm on Wednesday, July 17, 2024.

We encourage you to make a submission:
