Under the Local Government Act 1989, a Council must adopt and maintain a policy in relation to the reimbursement of expenses for Councillors and members of Council committees.
The Reimbursement of Expenses and Support Policy provides guidance on reimbursement of expenses, provision of facilities and support for Councillors and members of Council committees.
In addition, Council has adopted a Councillor Professional Development Policy to provide:
- a framework for offering professional development support to Councillors; and
- to maximise the effectiveness of professional development within budget constraints.
To provide transparency and accountability, below are summaries of Councillor expenditure, including allowances.
