Date to be confirmed
The 2020 Annual Electors’ meeting has been cancelled and will be rescheduled once the State of Emergency in Western Australia has been lifted. This is in line with the State Government’s COVID-19 directions.

Public questions and statements 

All public questions and statements must be submitted by 5pm the day before the Council meeting. Before submitting a question or statement, please read the Public Question Procedure and Public Statement procedure

Petitions

Please note the following protocol for submissions of petitions. Petitions must:

  • be addressed to the Mayor
  • be made by electors of the district
  • state the request on each page of the petition
  • contain the names, addresses and signatures of the elector(s) making the request, and the date each elector signed
  • contain a summary of the reasons for the request
  • state the name of the person upon whom, and an address at which, notice to the petitioners can be given.

Petitions can either be presented to the City of Subiaco or be presented by a Councillor at a Council Meeting. Upon receipt, petitions will be forwarded to relevant Officers for consideration as part of a report to Council, either on the issue relating to the petition, or as a separate report.

Where a petition does not relate to or conform to the above it may be treated as an ‘informal’ petition and the CEO may at their discretion forward the petition to a committee or to council accompanied by an Officer report.

Approved deputations

Approved deputations to a council meeting will only be received in special circumstances and only with the approval of the council given by a decision at a prior meeting. Approved deputations to committees will only be received with the prior approval of at least a half of the members of the committee. An approved deputation:

  • is not to exceed five persons, only two of whom may address the council or committee, although others may respond to specific questions from the members
  • is not to address the council or committee for a period exceeding fifteen minutes without the agreement of the council or the committee as the case requires.

Any matter which is the subject of a deputation to the council or a committee is not to be decided by the council or committee, until the deputation has completed its presentation.
