Public Participation At Meetings
Attending Council meetings
At Council meetings the Mayor and Councillors debate and decide on important issues affecting our District on your behalf.
Council and committee meetings are held in the Council Chambers at our main office, 29 Bowler Avenue, Gore. The Mataura Community Board meets at the Mataura Community Centre in McQueen Ave, Mataura.
Members of the public may make a five minute presentation to the Council or any committee if they have requested permission from the Chair at least seven working days prior to the meeting.
Requests should be emailed to [email protected] and marked for the Chief Executive’s attention. Alternatively, they can be handed in at our main office.
Where an issue is urgent or of major public interest, the Chair may allow a shorter notification period.
Presentations can be made at all Council and committee meetings held in public.
