The day-to-day operations of Council are directed by a series of policies that form the Flinders Council Policy and Procedure Manual. The Policy and Procedure Manual is reviewed every four years at the beginning of each new Council term. Individual Policies are otherwise updated at Council’s discretion.
New policies, amendments and policies to be rescinded are considered at Ordinary Council Meetings and if approved are available for public comment for a period of 28 days.If no public submissions are received within the 28 days, the policy is deemed approved and reported as adopted in the next Council Meeting Agenda, taking effect from then on. When a submission is received the policy is reconsidered at the subsequent Ordinary Meeting of Council.
