June monthly ordinary meeting

Council meeting will go ahead

The June monthly MidCoast Council ordinary meeting will be held as scheduled tomorrow, Wednesday, June 30 but with special provisions.

Due to the State's current COVID-19 restrictions, councillors will attend the meeting remotely.

Members of the public will be able to view the meeting from 2pm via livestream through a weblink, accessible on the council website on Wednesday morning.

Those interested are still permitted to attend in person, however social distancing requirements means numbers are capped at 25 in line with the current Public Health Order, and councillors able to attend remotely.

The meeting will consider council's delivery program, operational plan and budget for 2021-22 and will also set the rates, fees and charges for the coming financial year.

Consideration will also be given to a planning proposal for a rezoning for Lake Street, Forster, an update on the Civic Precinct project and allocations under the local heritage fund.

Also on the agenda is council's climate change policy and strategy and a development application for an upgrade for the Tea Gardens library.
