How To Ask a Question at Committee Meetings
A formal question time is held during every ordinary meeting of those Committees which are open to the public. Members of the public can use this opportunity to ask a question about any issue relating to the operations of the particular Committee. This time is available only for asking questions, and not statements or preamble. Complex questions requiring research should be submitted as early as possible in order to allow the City sufficient time to prepare a response.
The Presiding Person may nominate a Member or Officer to answer the question. The Presiding Person may also determine that any complex question requiring research be answered in writing. No debate or discussion is allowed to take place on any question or answer.
To ask a question, please write on the yellow Question Sheet provided at the entrance to Committee Room 1 and hand it to a staff member before the meeting begins. Alternatively, questions can be forwarded to the City of Perth, prior to 3.00pm on the day of the meeting, by :-
|Letter:||Addressed to Chief Executive Officer, City of Perth, GPO Box C120, Perth, 6839|
|Facsimile:||(08) 9461 3071|
