A suspension on the Council Community Forum has been actioned in Port Augusta.

Earlier in the week, an incident occurred where two members of the public became aggressive and verbally abusive to Elected Members of the council at the Community Forum Meeting.

Due to this occurrence, a formal incident report has been lodged.

Until it is deemed appropriate, the forum has been temporarily suspended, as concerns for the personal safety of employees and Elected Council Members have been prioritized.

An incident investigation is taking place, while options for the community engagement in the local Council, will be considered in accordance with the Council’s Public Consultation and Engagement Policy.
