Lismore City Council have announced they are again opening the doors to their meetings with the State Government COVID-safety measures in place.
Council says to ensure the safety of the public, staff and Councillors, they have implemented a COVID plan for all Council meetings and briefings.
If you are wanting to attend a meeting, you are asked to be in the Corporate Centre lobby (facing Oliver Avenue), at the Council Chambers between 5.30 and 6pm on the day of the meeting.
Visitors will need to have their temperature checked and will be required to register using a QR Code (alternative arrangements are in place for those without a smart phone).
If you have any cold or flu symptoms, Council asks that you enjoy their livestream services through their website and Facebook page.
Personal information collected will be managed in accordance with Service NSW contact tracing policies. Those unwilling to provide necessary details will be refused entry.
You will then be escorted to the Chamber by a COVID Marshal.
The number of people allowed into the Chamber’s public gallery is capped at eight, with an overflow room (with live-streaming) capped at an additional 22 people.
Those who are registered to speak during Public Access will be given priority seating in the public gallery, with the remainder of the seating allocated on a ‘first in, first served basis’.
Hand sanitiser will be available and people are asked to socially distance where practicable and remain seated. Masks are not mandatory, but their use is encouraged. Surfaces will be disinfected before and after meetings.
Council says that their friendly COVID marshallers are on hand for everyone’s safety.
Ordinary Monthly Meetings will still be broadcast on our Facebook Page and website at www.lismore.nsw.gov.au
