We have grave concerns about the proposed changes to the By Law that governs council meetings. In particular Clause 20 - Public Question Time and Clause 21 - Notice of Motion.
The proposed changes have not been justified and we see them as a restriction on our rights to ask questions at council meetings and for councillors to work on our behalf.
We have spoken at the Hearing of Submissions on 7th May and expect council will decide whether to proceed with the changes at their May 28th meeting.
