Formal Council meetings are an important part of our business at the City of Mitcham. Our Mayor and Elected Members take part in a decision-making process. This provides direction for the Council’s Chief Executive Officer and staff.
Council meetings are where policy and other statutory matters are decided. As a corporate body, Council decisions can only be made by resolution. This means that any matters requiring decision must be heard before a properly convened meeting, and can only be passed by a majority vote.
We have various committees to assist Council in the decision-making process. These committees report directly to the Council, with the exception of the Council Assessment Panel (CAP).
Meetings are held in the Council Chambers at 131 Belair Road, Torrens Park.
Agendas and minutes are available for viewing at:
- Council's Civic Centre, 131 Belair Road, Torrens Park
- Mitcham Memorial Library, 154 Belair Road, Hawthorn
- Blackwood Library, 215 Main Road, Blackwood
The City of Mitcham has a strong commitment to maintaining public access to Council and Committee meetings. Opportunity will continue to be given to the public to make a deputation if requested before the meeting and permission is granted by the Chair - if you wish to make a deputation please forward your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also a Gallery Question Time at Council meetings where the public is able to ask questions of the Council.
