Public council meeting scheduled on its August dismissal day

COUNCILLORS' final public meeting could be held on the day the State Government swings the axe in Ipswich.

About six weeks remain until the expected legislation to remove councillors is introduced to the Queensland Parliament.

Division 2 Councillor Paul Tully and colleagues will meet for a full council meeting at least twice before their dismissal - including on the day the State Government debates legislation to remove them.

The council's August meeting is scheduled for the 21st, the same day the state plans to bring on its dismissal laws.

Until then, Ipswich councillors have insisted it will be business as usual.

Cr Tully, who last month moved a motion to livestream the council meetings, expected things would progress as usual until the dismissal.

"We will be focused, we are all duly elected and have taken an oath office to carry out our duties," he said.

Cr Tully said he was not aware of any final motions councillors would bring in the final days in their roles.
