Coronavirus (COVID-19) Important Updates

Community and Business responsibilities: COVID-Safe Plan

Community Services and Businesses that were previously directed to close and now reopened must complete a COVID-Safe Plan before they can reopen.

This Plan will outline how your staff and patrons can be kept safe from COVID-19. The plan must be completed and made available at your business premises. If your business was allowed to reopen during Step 1 of South Australia’s Roadmap to Recovery, you must complete a Plan.

If your committee or group has not completed the COVID-Safe Plan, or does not have the plan available at your premises when requested, you can be fined up to $5000 on the sport for non-compliance, or face prosecution.

Agenda & Minutes

Council Meetings


Due to COVID-19 restrictions for public gatherings, from 28 April 2020 until further notice, Council Meetings will be conducted electronically and recorded (excluding confidential items).

This measure is in line with Australian Government guidelines in response to COVID-19 and has been taken to ensure the safety of Elected Members, Council staff and any members of the public who wish to access the meeting.  Recent variations to the Local Government Act 1999 and Regulations have made electronic participation in Council meetings legally possible.

Elected Members and Council Officers will attend the meetings via remote access.

A recording of the meeting will be made available to members of the public shortly after the conclusion of the meeting on Councils website for the period only while the COVID-19 restrictions apply.

Should you have any questions about the recording of council meetings please contact Council on 8666 2014 or email


Recordings of proceedings are not an official record of the meeting; they do not replace the official Minutes of the meeting.

While every effort will be made to ensure the recording is available, the District Council of Mount Remarkable takes no responsibility for, and accepts no liability, in the event that recording of a meeting or the Council’s website is unavailable due to external interruptions.

Statements made by individual persons at a meeting, and which may be contained in a recording of the meeting are those of the individuals making them, and not of the Council as a whole. To be clear, unless set out in a resolution the Council does not endorse or support such statements.

The Council does not accept any liability for statements made or actions taken by individuals during a meeting that may be contrary to law, including discriminatory, defamatory or offensive comments. Such statements or actions are not protected by privilege and may be the subject of legal proceedings and potential liability, for which the Council takes no responsibility.

The District Council of Mount Remarkable comprises the Mayor, Deputy Chairperson and 5 Councillors, and is the decision-making body on all strategic and policy matters. Ordinary Meetings are scheduled to be held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month in the Council Chambers at the Council Office, 3 Stuart Street, Melrose, commencing at 9.30am.
