Council Meetings and Workshops
Did you know that Council Meetings are open to the public? General Meetings are alternated to each town across the region. You can check the dates and locations for each meeting online. If you can’t attend a Meeting in person, you’re welcome to join online. Following the General Meetings, the public are invited to Public Sessions held afterward, for the opportunity to share issues and concerns with Councillors.
Our Councillors also attend bi-monthly Information Workshops. The workshops are an opportunity for Council Officers to keep Councillors up to date with projects that are happening throughout the region. If you’d like to join one of the General Meetings, view the Agendas that are discussed, go to

Water and Wastewater Team
Council was proud to nominate Gayndah Water and Wastewater Treatment Operator Mitchell Gormley for the prestigious Water Industry Operators’ Association of Australia (WIOAA) award for Young Operator of the Year in recognition of his overall performance and development since joining Council as a Trainee Operator a little over there years ago. We are happy to announce he has progressed to the shortlist of finalists for the award which will be decided and presented at this year’s 47th Queensland Water Industry Operations Conference & Exhibition to be held on the 19th and 20th of July on the Sunshine Coast. Council wishes Mitchell the best of luck on the night. But whatever the outcome Mitchell has acquitted himself well across the fields of achievement the award is designed to recognise initiative, innovation, improvement, customer service, quality, safety, continual development and community involvement. Well done, Mitchell.
