Re: [council] Document Deadlines

A reminder of the new requirement approved by the Board that all documents for consideration by the Governmental Advisory Committee shall be available 15 working days prior to the beginning of the Sydney meeting on 21 June 2009, and all other documents shall be available 10 working days prior to the beginning of the Sydney meeting. This will apply to motions before Council.

Thank you Glen for passing on this message.

I too would like to see that we have motions ready 10 days before. And it may helpful that the BOARD is making rules about schedules, I certainly accept their right to make rules about such requirements for themselves and for the GAC.

However since we have always worked on a 7 day before bases, I will not exclude from consideration anything that makes the 7 day deadline though of course other council may object to taking such a vote and then we will postpone as we have done in the past.. any council votes will only be voted on at the 24 June meeting, so as I understand the deadlines:

10 day would be 24 June
7 day would be 17 June

Of course the earlier a motion is posted the better, but with trying to coordinate out work with things that are being done elsewhere, e.g. by the board and its committees, and the fact that these this are often delayed, it does not make sense to withhold work from the face to face meeting.
