Council meeting structure & meeting schedule

City hall

The Council is the decision-making body on all policy matters.  Matters for consideration by the Council are usually directed through Council's Standing Committees, which are:

  • Planning and Development Committee,
  • Water and Waste Committee,
  • Infrastructure Committee,
  • Environment and Community Committee,
  • Finance and Business Strategy Committee,
  • Economic Development

All Councillors are members of each of the six Committees.  Each Committee has a Chair and a Portfolio Leader, with the exception of the Economic Development Committee which does not have a Portfolio Leader.  The Terms of Reference for each of the six Standing Committees can be found on the Committee meetings page.

All Ordinary Meetings of Council and its Committees are open to the public.  However, the Council or a Committee may consider it necessary to close the meeting to the public to discuss any of the following matters:

  • the appointment, dismissal or discipline of employees
  • industrial matters affecting employees
  • Council's budget
  • rating concessions
  • contracts proposed to be made by Council
  • starting or defending legal proceedings involving Council
  • an action to be taken by the Council under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009, including deciding applications made to it under that Act or
  • other business for which a public discussion would be likely to prejudice the interests of Council or someone else, or enable a person to gain a financial advantage.

When a matter of this nature is to be discussed, the resolution to close the meeting will specify the nature of the matter to be considered.

All Ordinary Meetings of Council and Committee Meetings are held in the Council Chambers, First Floor, City Hall, 541 Ruthven Street, Toowoomba.  Details of forthcoming meetings and any changes to meetings, venues or times are published in Council's news column in local newspapers.
