The measures have been extended to 26 April 2022 under the Justice Legislation Amendment (System Enhancements and Other Matters) Act 2021.
The extension will enable councils to continue to represent their communities and make critical decisions.
A Ministerial Good Practice Guideline has been published on the Local Government Victoria website to provide guidance to councils on using these mechanisms.
It sets out the requirements for virtual meetings, including access for the public and confidentiality.
Local Government Victoria has information for councils with links to information about the various services councils provide, such as aged and disability services, immunisation services and sports and leisure facilities.
