Annual General Meeting

Community members are invited to the Council’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) at 11am on Saturday, 7 December 2019.

The primary purpose of a council annual general meeting (AGM) is to allow the public to ask questions about the contents of the council’s annual report, and to provide an opportunity for the electors present to make any relevant motions for the council to consider at the next ordinary council meeting.

Kingborough Council takes the opportunity to provide one to two presentations on issues or projects of interest at the AGM. This year there will be two short presentations from staff:

  • Recreational Water Quality for Kingborough
  • Draft Play Space and Playground Strategy

Members of the community are invited to make submissions on Council’s Annual Report for discussion at its Annual General Meeting. You can submit questions via:

The deadline for submissions is Sunday, 1 December 2019.
