Council Meetings and Workshops
All Council meetings and workshops including any Community Board, Ward Committee or Maori Council meetings are generally open to the public, unless there is a reason for public to be excluded.
Council, Committee and Community Board meetings are run in accordance with Standing Orders as adopted at the beginning of the triennium.
Participation in Meetings
The public are welcome to attend meetings unless specifically 'public excluded'.
