Deputations (speaking at a Council meeting)
Each deputation is allocated a five minute time limit in which to address the meeting. Elected Members are invited to ask questions after each deputation.
A person wishing to appear as a deputation must complete deputation request form.
Requests can be emailed to the Chief Executive Officer, firstname.lastname@example.org, dropped off at Council’s Customer Service Lameroo and Pinnaroo or posted to:
Chief Executive Officer
Southern Mallee District Council
PO Box 49
Pinnaroo SA 5304
The request must be received at least 24 hours prior to the Council or Committee meeting at which you wish to be heard. Any request for a deputation received after this time will be treated as a request to appear at the next meeting.
Upon the receipt of a deputation request, the following process will be followed:
- The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will advise the Presiding Member (Mayor or Chairperson) of the receipt of a deputation request.
- The Presiding Member will consider the request and advise the CEO of acceptance or refusal of the request.
- The CEO will advise the requestor of the acceptance of their deputation request (including the details of the date, time, location of the meeting and the length of time allocated for the deputation). Or the CEO will advise the requestor if their deputation request has been refused.
If refused, the Presiding Member will report the decision to the next meeting of the Council or Committee.
