Public Question Time

(Public Question Time is conducted in accordance with the Local Government Act 1995) 

Public question time is an opportunity for members of the community to ask questions. A minimum of 15 minutes is allowed so questions must be brief and concise, relating to the ordinary business of the Shire of Kellerberrin/function of the Shire. During the meeting, members of the public will be called forward to ask their questions as specified in the Agenda. The Presiding Member will invite you to come forward to ask your question/s. You will state your name and place of residence and then proceed to ask you questions one a time. The Presiding Member may limit the number of questions each person may ask if there are a large number of people wishing to ask questions and any questions relating to an agenda item will be considered first and those dealing with matters of a general nature will be considered in the order in which they have been received. This is to ensure an equal and fair opportunity for everyone wishing to ask questions during the Council Meeting. Also if you have a question that the Presiding Member believes has been previously responded to, you will be advised accordingly. No debate or discussion about the question or answer will take place during Public Question time at the meeting. 

If you would like to ask a question at a Council Meeting, especially if it is complex and may require research, we ask that you register and submit your questions in writing before midday on the day of the meeting. This allows any research to be conducted so a complete and considered answer can be given at the meeting rather than your question/s being ‘taken on notice’. 

Please submit a question, via email to the Chief Executive Officer at, or with the form below.
