Public to access council audio

THE public can access audio of Northern Grampians Shire Council meetings.

Recordings of all ordinary and special council meetings will be available for download from the council’s website.

All proceedings at monthly council meetings will be recorded live in the council chamber and available for download the following day.

Mayor Tony Driscoll said the new process was part of a concerted effort to increase transparency and public engagement.

“By providing these recordings for the public to download and listen to at their leisure, we’re making the decision-making process accessible to everyone,” Cr Driscoll said.

“We understand that due to increasingly busy modern lifestyles, it is difficult for members of the public to come along.”
