At a South Melbourne Market Committee meeting Public Question Time is on the agenda for members of the public to ask direct questions. Questions should be directed to the Chairperson. Questions must not relate to a matter beyond or outside the Committee’s powers, be defamatory, indecent, abusive, objectionable in language or substance, nor raise any matter which will or would likely to be considered by the Committee as a confidential item under s89(2) of the Local Government Act. Each question will be recorded in the minutes. Responses to questions provided at the meeting will be recorded in the minutes. Responses to questions taken on notice will be sent to the person who asked the question. Please provide contact details so we can provide responses as appropriate. The number of questions that a member of the public may ask shall be at the discretion of the Chairperson.
Any public comment to an agenda item at a South Melbourne Market Committee Meeting will occur at the discretion of the Chairperson. Public comment is for members of the public to make comment on agenda items and proposals. Members of the public are asked to focus on the agenda item under consideration. Each speaker will be given an opportunity to comment on an agenda item. The length of time available to each speaker will be at the Chairperson’s discretion, noting that time available may be limited. A brief summary of the speaker’s comments will be recorded in the minutes. Please nominate a single speaker if there are several people representing a common position. The Chairperson of the meeting will endeavour to bring forward items where there are numerous speakers. When your item is called you will be invited to step forward and address the Committee.
