Public Question Time - Annual Meeting of Electors

Please record the details of your question/questions on this form and submit by 4pm on Friday 15 February 2019. This will ensure accurate recording in the Minutes of the meeting.

Unless the Shire President has specifically resolved to allow it, recording of the meeting by any electronic, visual or audio recording device or instrument is not permitted. All members of the public present are requested to turn off their mobile phones or any other devices before the commencement of the meeting. 

  • Regulation 18 of the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996 states that the procedure to be followed at an Electors’ Meeting is to be determined by the person presiding at the meeting. The Shire President will be presiding at this Annual Meeting of Electors for the Shire of Gingin.

  • Questions may be asked in relation to any matter affecting the Shire.

  • All questions must be directed to the Shire President. 

  • Please clearly state your name and address for the record before putting a question to the Shire President.

  • To ensure that all members of the public wishing to ask a question have the opportunity to do so, each individual will be restricted to asking one question at a time. The Shire President will then call on other members of the public in sequence to ask their question. Once all members of the public have had an opportunity to present their question, the Presiding Member will call for further questions.

  • Answers to questions are provided in good faith. However, unless questions are submitted in writing to the CEO at least 48 hours prior to the meeting, it must be accepted that the answer provided may not be totally comprehensive and therefore should not be relied upon.

  • If a question cannot be answered at the meeting it will be taken on notice by the Presiding Member and dealt with in accordance with normal Council procedure, with a written response being provided. If possible, written responses will be included in the Minutes of the meeting.
