Media Response Alcohol Policy
Questions and Responses
We've been asked to check in with our councils to see if there's a specific alcohol policy. Do councillors have a drink with dinner before Monash Council meetings? Or do they wait until after the meeting?
We don’t have a dedicated policy around the serving of alcohol to councillors. On occasion some Councillors may choose to stay back and have a chat and a drink after a formal Council meeting, which occurs once a month. No alcohol is served at dinners prior to a formal Council meeting.
