Colac Otway Shire Council has cancelled its 25 March 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting, scheduled to be held in Apollo Bay, in response to the COVID-19 situation.

This decision has been made based on:

  • Advice from National Cabinet’s implementation of a Stage 1 shutdown of non-essential activity across Australia due to Coronavirus COVID-19.
  • The health and safety of all members of the community.
  • There are no items on the agenda which must urgently be considered by Council and these items will be postponed to the April Council Meeting.
  • The Local Law allows the CEO to cancel a meeting in the case of an emergency. The State Government has declared a State of Emergency.

It is Council’s aim to arrange for live-streaming of the April Ordinary Council Meeting.
