Committee & Council Meetings
At the City of Mandurah, as Committees do not have delegated powers to make decisions, their recommendations are put before Council for a decision to be made. When considering recommendations, Council may:
- Accept the recommendation put forward and adopt it en bloc without further debate/discussion
- Withdraw a particular item for further discussion or modification or propose that another course of action be taken
- Defer making a decision on an item, pending further consideration/discussion at an appropriate meeting.
As such, recommendations from a committee meeting cannot be implemented until approval is given by Council.
