Governance Rules provide for a Council to consider and make decisions on any matter fairly and on its merits. They also institute decision making processes to ensure that any person whose rights will be directly affected by a Council decision is entitled to communicate their views and have their interests considered. Hume City Council's current Governance Rules were adopted at the Council Meeting on 24 August 2020.
At its meeting held on Monday 22 February 2021, Council passed a motion proposing to change section 30 of Chapter 2 of its Governance Rules, which sets out the procedure for Council to rescind or alter a previous resolution of Council. At this meeting Council also approved the placing of this proposed change on public exhibition.
