The City of Casey is proposing some further changes to our Governance Rules, but before the rules are finalised, we’re seeking feedback from the community.
Council adopted some initial changes to the Governance Rules on 30 August 2022 that related to provisions around allowing virtual Council meetings where required to adhere to Victorian legislation. At that meeting, Council also resolved to take a further look at the Governance Rules to incorporate other necessary administrative changes and respond to community feedback.
Council has now incorporated all the proposed changes and the revised draft Governance Rules were adopted for public exhibition at a Council Meeting on Tuesday 21 February 2023.
Some of the changes related to the Election Period Policy as well as updates that respond to community feedback relating to e-petitions, clarity around formal objections and rules regarding the grounds a Notice of Motion can be rejected.
