Council promises transparency

16 Apr 2013

City of Melbourne has vowed to become a more accessible, transparent and responsive organisation in its four-year plan.

Council released the Council Plan 2013-17 document for community input last month.

The document is the initial release of the plan, which outlines the work council intends to do over its four-year term.

Councillors have added goals about accountability and transparency to a list of existing council priorities.

The document states that council aims to increase public disclosure and access to information.

Council will measure its progress in achieving these goals through a decrease in the amount of agenda items that are dealt with in confidential sessions and an increase in the level of information published online.

Comments on the document can be submitted until April 12 via the feedback form at www.melbourne.vic.gov.au or in person at City of Melbourne customer service centres and libraries.

The draft plan and draft Annual Plan and Budget will be released on May 10.
