Agenda Briefing Sessions

At the 25 July 2018 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council resolved to amend the adopted  Agenda Briefing Session Guidelines to the extent that these forums are open to the public to observe.

Agenda Briefing Sessions are held the third Wednesday of the month at 2.00pm in the Shire of Donnybrook Balingup Council Chambers, Collins Street, Donnybrook. These sessions are open to the public to attend, however there is no opportunity for public participation.

Agenda Briefing Sessions provide an opportunity for staff to brief Councillors on the upcoming agenda items and for Councillors to ask questions. There is no debate and no decisions are made in this forum.
