Commencing with the Wednesday 28 July 2021 Council Meeting:

Council meetings will be live-streamed, and archived recordings will be available on the Council website for viewing.

Public Participation Time

Council will still be accepting questions on notice and submissions for the meeting.

Questions and submissions made under Baw Baw Shire’s Governance Rules may be read out by the Chair or a member of Council staff nominated by the Chair.

How to make a submission

Council will accept written submissions on any agenda item. Written submissions are to be received by 5.30pm on the Monday before the Council Meeting and can be made using the submission webform on Council’s website.
