Please be advised that at its meeting held 16 November 2021, Council resolved to reschedule the date of the 2021 Electors General Meeting.  The EGM was scheduled to be held 6 December 2021.  The new date of the EGM will be selected once the 2020/2021 Annual Report can be finalised and endorsed by Council.  It is anticipated that the Annual Report will be presented to Council in early 2022 following the summer recess.  Following Council's endorsement of the 2020/2021 Annual Report, the new date of the EGM will be advertised to the public.

Meeting information

 

  • The City of Stirling’s Council comprises 15 Elected Members, including the popularly elected Mayor and 14 Councillors, two representing each of the City's seven wards. Council is responsible for making decisions on behalf of the community.

    Council meetings take place generally on alternating Tuesdays at 7.00pm at 25 Cedric Street, Stirling. Please ensure that you check the 'City's Council and Committee meeting dates' (below) to confirm the dates of each meeting.

    Did you know?

    Every public question and answer is recorded in the minutes as a permanent record.  Minutes are also published on the City’s website.

    The City welcomes community participation in its decision making processes through public question time.

    Our Council knows that when someone takes the time to ask a question at a Council meeting, it is very important to them.  We value that feedback.

    With over 245,000 residents at the City, there is a high demand for public question time.  We honour that demand by providing at least 45 minutes of public question time at each meeting; three times the statutory requirement of 15 minutes.  Often, even that is not enough time for all of the questions.

    You can honour the rights of your fellow community members to have time to ask their questions in the following ways:

    1. Seeking information from City officers before the meeting.  We can be more generous with our time outside the busy Council Chambers
    2. Contacting your ward Councillor before the meeting.  Ward Councillors can also be more generous with their time outside the Council Chambers
    3. Not including any preambles or statements.  We will generally know what your question is about.  If we don’t we will ask you for more information
    4. Not asking your question if a similar question has already been asked.  Asking the same question multiple times does not increase its impact, it may have the opposite effect
    5. Asking your question online using the online form below, and not at the meeting.  Every question asked online is answered in writing and recorded in the minutes
    6. Asking a short sharp question.  Lengthy questions are hard to follow and lose their impact
    7. Taking any offer to meet with you to discuss your concerns.  Meeting on site with an officer or a Councillor is a better way of understanding concerns.

    If you have any questions about public question time, please contact us on 9205 8555 or goverance@stirling.wa.gov.au
