Electronic meetings

Due to the COVID-19 social distancing requirements, from 7 April 2020 until further notice, the Town of Victoria Park’s Agenda Briefing Forums, Ordinary Council Meetings and Special Council Meetings will be held electronically. 

Amendments to the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996 were passed by Parliament on 25 March 2020 and came into force on 26 March 2020. The amendments mean local governments can hold electronic Council and Committee meetings during a public health emergency. 

Public access to meetings

Public access to these meetings will be via a livestream.
