Council now has the option of holding council meetings electronically after emergency legislation was passed by the state government.
Legislation detailing emergency measures and changes to a number of state acts came into effect from Wednesday, with councils now given power under the Local Government Act to hold meetings using 'audio-visual links' as opposed to physical meetings in response to the spread of coronavirus.
A Griffith City Council spokeswoman said the option of holding meetings is being explored, with new guidelines imposed meaning the Burley Griffin Room in the Griffith Regional Theatre - where council held their March 24 meeting - will not meet the new guidelines for a meeting.
"Council are exploring electronic meeting options and will be trialling them with councillors shortly," the spokeswoman said.
"For the number of people who are required to attend a council meeting - 12 councillors, staff and public gallery - the Burley Griffin Room will not meet the new guidelines."
Council elected at the March 24 meeting to move to one meeting a month for the rest of the calendar year in response to the pandemic, with the next meeting of council scheduled for April 28.
The move came in council's first meeting since COVID-19 was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation.
The meeting was moved from the regular spot of the city's council chambers, with council recording five apologies for the meeting.
With seven councillors present at the meeting, one item on the agenda - a lease transfer at the Griffith Aerodrome - had to be pushed to the next council meeting after Councillor Simon Croce amended a declaration of interest in regards to the item, leaving council without a quorum to vote on the item.
Also pushed back was council's draft masterplan for the new cemetery and crematorium at the proposed Rifle Range site, which council was due to vote on it going onto public exhibition for a period of 28 days.
Councillor Dino Zappacosta moved to lay the plan on the table and said it would be a better idea to have the plan come before council again when "we think we have the time to get into it" due to the uncertainty of the situation.
The state's Attorney-General Mark Speakman said the changes implemented by the emergency provisions are to ensure facilities continue operation while also protecting frontline staff.
"Our number one priority is the health and safety of the people of NSW," he said.
"These necessary changes will mean that essential public amenities can continue to operate effectively while maintaining the well-being of our frontline workers and the broader public.
"These temporary measures will help ensure we are ready for any development."
