Annual Electors' General Meeting

A statutory requirement of the Local Government Act 1995 is that each Council must have a General Meeting of Electors once every financial year. The Shire usually holds its Electors General Meeting in November of each year.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the contents of the annual report for the previous financial year and any other general business.

In many respects, the Electors General Meeting is similar to the Annual Meeting of shareholders of public companies, and as such the Shire’s "shareholders", that is to say, its electors, are encouraged to attend and see how their Council has performed during the past year.

The Meeting is attended by the President, Councillors and Senior Officers who are happy to answer any questions that may arise.
