Annual General Meeting of Electors

Purpose

In accordance with the Local Government Act 1995 a general meeting of electors must be held each financial year after a local government accepts the annual report.

The matters to be discussed at the general electors' meeting are firstly, the contents of the annual report for the previous financial year and then any other general business.

Procedures

The procedure to be followed at a general or special meeting of electors is to be determined by the presiding member.

Each elector who is present at a general or special meeting of electors is entitled to one vote on each matter to be decided at the meeting but does not have to vote. All decisions at a general or special meeting of electors are to be made by a simple majority of votes. Voting at a general or special meeting of electors is to be conducted so that no voter’s vote is secret.

All decisions made at an electors’ meeting are to be considered at the next ordinary council meeting or, if that is not practicable  at the first ordinary council meeting after that meeting or at a special meeting called for that purpose, whichever happens first.

Minutes

Minutes of the proceedings at an electors’ meeting are to be kept and preserved and can be made available for inspection by members of the public before the council meeting at which decisions made at the electors’ meeting are first considered.
