Due to the current state of emergency and public health emergency declared in WA, Council will be meeting by electronic means (eMeetings) for the Ordinary Council Meetings on 28 April, 26 May, 23 June and 28 July.

Please note that agendas, minutes and attachments will be available on this website as normal under Agendas & Minutes. The Shire encourages community interest and Public Question Time will continue, however as no public or physical attendance at Council Meetings will be allowed during the state of emergency, public involvement in the eMeetings shall be limited to written questions only.

Please submit your written questions to Danika Chandler via email by 12pm the day before the eMeeting. You will then be provided a response via email prior to the release of the unconfirmed minutes on the Shire of Irwin website, in which the response will also be published.

The Shire respectfully requests that only questions relating to items on the agenda or essential questions be submitted at this time to allow staff to focus on their duties during this challenging time.
