Council Meeting changes due to COVID-19

8th April 2020
Berri Barmera Council is getting extra tech-savvy to comply with social distancing rules and implement new legislation allowances due to the major emergency declaration made in South Australia on the 22 March 2020

Last night, Council trialled its first online meeting for its Special Meeting of Council and updated several policies to reflect the ability to have electronic meetings - something which under normal circumstances is not permitted.

The Mayor hosted the meeting online from the Council Chambers with our CEO and the councillors took part from their homes.  Mayor Hunt was able to see all of the councillors and their raised hands when voting.

The meeting was recorded and published on Council’s YouTube account. You can view the record of meeting here

Council will continue to use this option for upcoming meetings which will be listed on our website and available for the public to view.
