Ordinary Meetings to be monthly
Fraser Coast Regional Council’s Ordinary Meeting cycle will change in 2018 from every three weeks to the fourth Wednesday of every month from 10am.
Mayor Chris Loft said the change would allow the end of month financial and performance reporting to be presented in a timely manner.
“The standardised meeting time also allows Council to better align the monthly process to meeting deadlines,” Cr Loft said.
The first Ordinary meeting in 2018 will be on 24 January in Hervey Bay. Subsequent meetings will alternate with Maryborough.
At least one Council meeting a year will be held in an outlying area of the Fraser Coast in 2018.
