Council is represented by a Mayor and nine councillors who look after the interests of the community. After 19 October 2019 Council will be represented by a mayor and 10 councillors. The Mayor and councillors, with their wealth of experience and commitment, serve to meet the requirements of the community at all times and are readily available to residents. Decisions are made through the following avenues.
Much of the City's business is handled by two standing committees which meet monthly. The committees comprise five councillors who review reports presented by City officers on a wide variety of topics.
The committees are held in the City of Rockingham Boardroom at 4pm and members of the public are welcome to attend. The Planning and Engineering Services Committee Meeting is held on the third Monday of the month and the Corporate and Community Development Services Committee Meeting is on the third Tuesday of the month.
Committee recommendations are placed before the monthly meetings of full Council for decisions. Council may accept committee recommendations, amend them, or send them back to the appropriate committee for further consideration.
Correspondence from individuals or organisations which cannot be handled through the routine processes and policies of the City is referred to the appropriate committee through an officer's report.
