Notice is hereby given, that pursuant to section 119 of the Local Government Act 1989, the Casey City Council, at its meeting on 18 August 2020, resolved to amend the Local Law No. 1 (2016) – Meeting Procedures and Use of the Common Seal.
The purpose and general purport of the proposed Local Law is to revoke the Local Law No. 1 (2016) – Meeting Procedures and Use of the Common Seal. The proposal was made due to the transition to the new Local Government Act 2020, which requires Councils to create Governance Rules. These Governance Rules replace the Local Law No. 1 (2016) – Meeting Procedures and Use of the Common Seal. Casey City Council endorsed the Governance Rules on 18 August 2020.
The proposal to revoke the Local Law is being made under section 111 of the Act and will operate throughout the municipal district of Casey City Council. A Community Impact Statement has been prepared to inform the community about the proposed Local Law amendment, to assist any public member who may wish to make a submission to the Council.
A copy of the proposed Local Law and Community Impact Statement are available for viewing on the Council’s website (www.casey.vic.gov.au). Any person may make a written submission on the proposal under section 223 of the Act, and submissions must be received by Thursday, 8 October 2020. Submissions made under section 223 of the Act are not confidential and:
- will be incorporated in full (including person’s name and suburb) into the agenda and minutes of any Council or Committee meeting at which the matter is considered;
- will be available on Council’s website as part of any relevant Council or Committee agenda and minutes;
- must be made available for public inspection in accordance with the provisions of the Act.
All submissions will be considered in accordance with section 223 of the Act. Submissions should be addressed to the Chief Executive Officer, Casey City Council, PO Box 1000, Narre Warren, Victoria 3805.
