Wagga councillors will be asked to support a vote of 'no confidence' in the Floodplain Risk Management Advisory Committee at next week's meeting.
The attempt to carry the motion follows a campaign and potential legal action by North Wagga residents to improve their levels of flood protection.
Cr Paul Funnell on Monday night will ask fellow councillors to support his motion to "conduct a vote of no confidence in the current Wagga City Council Floodplain Risk Management Advisory Committee"
He will also move that councillors "receive a report following a thorough investigation and review, into ongoing issues raised with (the committee) and the functionality of the procedures to produce efficient outcomes".
Cr Funnell said he was not expecting the committee to be disbanded or its members sacked but he wanted to pass on community feedback and demonstrate accountability.
"The committee needs to look at its charter and ask 'what are we really doing here?'," Cr Funnell said.
"Are we just going to have meetings and a talk fest, or are we actually going to have meetings with information and take actions."
North Wagga Resident Association treasurer Fiona Ziff welcomed the attempted motion "particularly because it has been initiated internally".
"It validates what the Residents have been saying for years - something is amiss," she said.
"It will send a clear message to the Minister that he needs to get involved. It will alert the community to a problem, which we believe they will want rectified.
"And most importantly, it gives the Residents hope that finally their voices are being heard."
Cr Funnell said he did not have "any great hope of being successful" with his motion.
"I have had a fellow councillor say that 'it's not a good look'," Cr Funnell said.
"If we are going to hold developers and everyone else to account, it's a good look for council, because we are showing transparency by saying 'we have got it wrong and we are taking action'."
General manager Peter Thompson referred to the advisory committee's decisions when defending the council last week in response to an online petition calling for greater flood protection in North Wagga.
Cr Rod Kendall has previously expressed confidence in the advisory committee, saying in functioned like any other committee and under council's rules on decision making and conflicts of interest.
Cr Funnell said he would support any move to place North Wagga residents on the committee.
Mr Thompson has previously said that the council tried to recruit North Wagga community representatives.
