Indigo Council will not change its law to allow the public to make "offensive" or "unacceptable" comments at meetings, dispute multiple objections.
A special meeting was held last week where Indigo resident John Harvey described the threat of a fine or censorship as "draconian" and "arbitrary", while others had also submitted written objections.
But the councillors passed the local law unanimously at Tuesday's meeting.
"We need a local law to regulate behaviour ... We just need to be able to control meetings," Cr Larry Goldsworthy said.
Although a fine can be issued for the offence of making "unacceptable" comments at Indigo Council meetings, that has not happened at Indigo Council in the past decade.
