Junee Shire Council has adopted a committee structure delegating certain functions in accordance with sections 355 of the Local Government Act 1993. The committees provide a mechanism by which interested persons can have an active role in advising and guiding the Council’s decision making in specific functional areas.

Four new committees have been endorsed under Section 355 :

  • Art and Culture Committee
  • Village and Rural Improvement Committee
  • Events and Tourism Committee
  • Access Advisory Committee

Each committee has a Terms of Reference to govern its purpose, role and function. A broader guidance document is available to assist community members who may have an interest in membership nomination.

Each committee will comprise two Councillors and five to seven community members depending on the committee. Committee members are appointed by the Council and members can only be appointed to one committee. The term of the committees coincides with the term of the Council (now until September 2020).
