Maroondah Councillors recently conducted a workshop designed to improve the proceedings of public meetings and improve the transparency of Council. These changes began at the June Council meeting and will provide debate and insight into the decisions that are being made by Council.
Maroondah Mayor Alex Makin said the move was a result of a “collective process” between councillors. “It is certainly an improvement and clarifies how Councillors make decisions,” Cr Makin said.
It is encouraging that all Councillors agreed on the need to improve the transparency of Maroondah City Council’s public meetings and further changes, including the ability for groups or individuals to formally present as a deputation to Council will be undertaken from July.
