The Mayor, Alderman and Staff of the Katherine Town Council invite you to attend the Ordinary Council Meetings and Open Forums.

The Ordinary Meetings of Council are held monthly, on the fourth Tuesday at 6.00 pm.

Commencing from the June Ordinary Meeting of Council, the ‘Open Forum” which usually precedes the meeting will no longer occur and will instead be replaced by Questions from the Community”, or equivalent in the agenda. The decision to replace the “Open Forum” with “Questions from the Community” has come about in order to receive agenda-based questions from the public and ensure that general public queries can be responded to in full and in a public setting.



The Ordinary Meeting of Council dates for 2021 are as per below:

January 27 January
February 23 February
March 23 March
April 27 April
May 25 May
June 22 June
July 27 July

Reviewable Decisions 

As per Section 227 of the Local Government Act (2008) and in accordance with good governance principals to ensure decision making is transparent and accountable, some decisions made by Council are reviewable.

A reviewable decision is one that council, a council committee or local board will review if a community member brings to council's attention a substantial reason as to why the decision should be reviewed.

The following categories of decisions are designated as reviewable:

  1. a decision by the council or a council committee to reject an application for correction of an entry in the assessment record (Section 154(6));
  2. a regulatory order (Section 196);
  3. a decision to refuse to suppress a person's name or address (or both) from publicly available material (Section 201(5)).
