Notice of Special Council meeting

A Special Council meeting has been called in accordance with section 84(2A) of the Local Government Act 1989 and will be held at 5.30 pm on Thursday 25 October 2018 in the Council Chamber, Merri-bek Civic Centre, 90 Bell Street, Coburg, for the purpose of considering an opportunity to purchase land.

The matter to be considered at the meeting has been declared confidential in accordance with section 89 (2)(d) of the Local Government Act 1989, as it relates to contractual matters, and as such the meeting will be closed to the public.

In accordance with section 94(4A) of the Local Government Act 1989, the community is advised the urgent or extraordinary circumstances that prevented 7 days public notice being given of the special meeting are that Council officers became aware of key information in relation to the land on 22 October 2018, and any delay to Council making a further decision in relation to the proposed acquisition of land would mean any decision Council made would not have as significant a benefit to the community.
