On 1 May 2020, Section 83 of the Local Government Act 1989 was repealed, which removes the two types of meetings, Ordinary meeting and Special meetings and was replaced by S.61(1) of the Local Government Act 2020, which outlines only one type of meeting termed ‘Council Meeting’

Additionally, Section 84 of the Local Government Act 1989 was repealed on 1 May 2020 which outlines the provisions for calling a Special Meeting.

At Council Meetings, Councillors vote on recommendations included in reports prepared by Council officers, propose motion and accept petitions and public questions from the community.

For those residents who are not able to attend meetings in person, Council Meetings will be live-streamed via the Wyndham City website and a copy of the recording will remain available for download on the Wyndham City website for a period of no less than 12 months.
