Council meetings will be open for public attendance.
Council meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 6pm in the Council Chambers at our Administration Building. Members of the public are welcome to attend. (Always confirm before attending as times can change without notice.)
At the Council Meeting, councillors make decisions on the reports and recommendations from the committee meetings.
Public Question Time
To assist the City in responding to questions during Public Question Time, please complete and submit the Pubic Question Time Form before the start of the Council or committee meeting. Guidelines for Public Question Time are included with the form.
If you would like to submit the form earlier than at the Council or committee meeting, please hand deliver or send your form by mail to the City of Rockingham. Alternatively you can email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you provide your form earlier, please note you or someone on your behalf needs to ask the question(s) at the committee or Council Meeting. If someone is not present to ask the question(s), they will be taken as normal correspondence.
