Council Meetings

Kangaroo Island Council meets on the second Tuesday of each month (with the exception of January being the third Tuesday of the month) at 11:00am. Meetings are generally held in the Council Chambers, 43 Dauncey Street, Kingscote, unless otherwise advised.

Meetings are open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend and observe proceedings. Community members are welcome to participate, either via Deputations or in the ‘Questions from the Gallery’ session. Forms for participation are available in Council Forms. Meetings are only closed when topics of a confidential matter are being discussed. For example, an individual’s financial circumstances, legal matters or a particular staff member.

Council Agendas, including attachments, are made available prior to the meetings either electronically or in hardcopy at Council's Office (Kingscote) Penneshaw Community Business Centre, American River Post Office and Parndana Post Office. Minutes are available electronically or in hardcopy in the same locations approximately one week after the meeting date however they are provisional minutes until accepted at the following meeting.

Council meetings allow the Mayor and Elected Members to decide the Council’s policy direction and make decisions on other statutory matters. These decisions are then implemented by Council staff. Council is a statutory body and can only make decisions by resolution, this is done by a motion being put to a meeting and then passed by a majority vote.

Council also holds Informal Gatherings and workshops to share information about specific topics on a monthly basis. These sessions are open to the public with the exception of confidential items, which will be considered at the end of the agenda and will be closed to the public. Community members are welcome to attend the open sessions, and observe proceedings as a member of the gallery. Council will notify the public when these workshops occur and what topics will be discussed by placement of notice on Council's noticeboard (Kingscote) and on the website. No decisions are made at these sessions, and thus no minutes taken. Any decisions will be made at a formal Council meeting.
