Wattle Range Council has adopted two important policies which relate to the Public Access to Council and Committee Meetings and the Internal Review of Council Decisions.
Policy No. 1.11 - Internal Review of Council Decisions
Wattle Range Council is committed to transparent decision making processes, and to providing access to a fair and objective procedure for the internal review of decisions.
Grievances may arise as a result of dissatisfaction with a decision about a policy, procedure, service or fee. All attempts will be made to resolve grievances quickly and efficiently, without the need for formal applications for review to be lodged. Sometimes this cannot be achieved. The procedure provides guidance for dealing with formal requests for internal review of decisions of Council, its employees, and other people acting on behalf of Council.
Dealing with grievances at the local level is the most effective way of resolving matters quickly. Applicants for review of decisions will be encouraged to participate in the review handling process co-operatively. However, this will not negate citizens' rights to seek external review through the State Ombudsman, other legal appeal processes, or the Courts at any time during the internal review process.
Policy No. 1.3 - Code of Practice - Public Access to Council and Committee Meetings and Associated Documents
Wattle Range Council is committed to the principle of honest, open and accountable government and encourages community participation in the business of Council, however in some special circumstances it may be necessary to restrict public access to Council discussions and documents.
This Code sets out the commitment of Wattle Range Council to provide public access to Council meetings and associated documents and outlines the policies, procedures and practices on why and how Wattle Range Council may use the provisions in the Local Government Act to restrict public access. The Code includes:
