Council & Committees
The Council's decision-making structure is made up of the Council and a number of committees that operate on a functional or 'as needed' basis.
Council meetings are the most important part of a Council's operations. The decisions made by Elected Members at formal Council meetings provide the direction and authority for the ongoing operation of the Council.
Council committees support Council decision-making. They are established to perform a specific function on behalf of the Council. Elected Member appointments to committees are made by the Council when each committee is established.
The Council's organisational structure is designed to meet the demands of a varied and vibrant community in a responsive and effective manner. The Council is structured as five departments, led by an Executive Leadership Team.
