Baw Baw Shire Council is increasing its transparency and community engagement by holding Open Community Briefings.
Baw Baw Shire will endeavour to hold Open Community Briefings, where Officers, members of the public or Community Groups will present on items of interest to the community.
Where possible, Open Community Briefings will be publicly live streamed, with questions accepted in advance of the meeting.
The appropriate information, generally in the form of an officer report, will be made publicly available on Councils website no less than two days prior to the Briefing.
Traditionally, briefings are held regularly to ensure that Councillors are well informed and in the best possible position to debate matters effectively at Council Meetings.
The topics of future Open Community Briefings will be published online.
