Executive Committees

Three Executive Committees comprising Elected Members and Council employees have been established by Council in order for matters to be discussed and recommendations made to be considered at Ordinary Council meetings. Almost all business that goes before Council is first considered at Executive Committee meetings.

Executive Committee meetings are held in the Council Chamber, Todd Street, on the third last Monday of every month (with the exception of public holidays, when the meeting will be held on Tuesday; and December/January, no meetings will be held), starting at 5.30pm. Meeting agendas and minutes are available at the meetings and can also be found here. The public are encouraged to attend these meetings.

These meetings allow community members to become actively involved, providing an opportunity to ask questions of Elected Members. Public question time is on the agenda at the beginning of each Executive Committee meeting.

  • corporate planning

Ordinary Council

Alice Springs Town Council holds monthly Ordinary meetings to make decisions in relation to its role, functions and objectives as defined in the Local Government Act.

Ordinary Council meetings are held in the Council Chamber, Todd Street, on the last Monday of every month (with the exception of public holidays, when the meeting will be held on Tuesday and December when meeting dates are brought forward in the month), starting at 6pm. Meeting agendas and minutes are available at the meeting and can also be found here. The public are encouraged to attend these meetings.

 

Executive Development Committee

Comprised Elected Members and Council employees, the Executive Development Committee discusses and provides input regarding developments to the Development Consent Authority, NT Planning Commission or the concerned Minister. Meetings are held 7.00am on the first Monday of every month (except for public holidays) in the Arunta Room, Todd Street. Meeting agendas and minutes are available at the meetings and can be found here. Public are welcome to attend these meetings.

 

Advisory Committees

Council is also supported by a number of Advisory Committees, providing more specialised advice in a number of areas such as recreational facilities, risk management, disability services, cemetery management and events.  Advisory Committees are made up of members of the public and Elected Members.  Recommendations arising from these committee meetings are considered at Ordinary Council meetings, in line with the Council meeting process.  Public are welcome to attend these meetings with meeting dates below.  Meeting agendas and minutes can be found here.
