New dress code in the North Burnett
NORTH Burnett residents will now have to officially wear a shirt when entering council buildings, North Burnett Regional Council has decided.
In a Policy and Planning meeting on November 2, all seven councillors voted for the new dress code policy.
CEO Mark Pitt said it was a formalisation of an unofficial policy.
"The policy was modelled on that of Bundaberg," Mr Pitt told the council.
"We've done consultations with it (and) it really formalises what currently exists in practice."
The policy has a minimum dress requirement of a shirt, shorts and footwear.
There is also a minimum personal hygiene requirement of cleanliness, hygiene to the minimum standard as expected by community norms and hygiene that does not disrupt others.
People who do not comply with the policy can be asked to leave council premises by council employees and refused entry in the future.
