Hindmarsh Shire Council operates in accordance with the Local Government Act 2020, and hold Council meetings monthly, generally on the first Wednesday of each month with the exception of January where no meeting is held.
A list of meeting locations and venues can be found below.
Council encourages members of the public to attend Council meetings or to view our Council meetings live through Hindmarsh Shire Council’s Facebook page.
Community members wishing to ask questions at council meetings may do so, in writing, at least 24 hours prior to the council meeting. Both the question and answer will be read out at the meeting. Questions may be submitted by mail, email firstname.lastname@example.org or delivered in person to a council customer centre but are limited to two questions and 100 words including any pre-amble. Offensive, trivial and repetitive questions or questions, which have been recently answered, may be excluded at the discretion of the Mayor.
The question must be accompanied by a name and the locality where the questioner resides or works, which will be read out at the meeting. By submitting a question, the questioner gives consent to this information being read out in public. Anonymous questions will not be answered.
There may be situations where, due to technical difficulties, a live stream of the Council Meeting may not be available. Whilst all reasonable efforts will be made to ensure that live streaming and Council’s Facebook Page are functioning, Council takes no responsibility for and cannot be held liable for, the live streaming or Council’s website and/or social media pages being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond Council’s direct control.
Where live streaming is the subject of a disruption, Council will notify the public on both its social media channels and Council’s website (if those channels have not been functionally compromised).
