The Local Government Act 2020 (the Act) requires a Council to develop and maintain a Councillor Code of Conduct. The Councillor Code of Conduct is required to be periodically reviewed. With the appointment of the Panel of Administrators, Council has developed an Administrator Code of Conduct. The Administrator Code of Conduct was adopted at a Scheduled Council Meeting held on 27 September 2023.
The Code applies to the Panel of Administrators for Moira Shire Council who have been appointed by Order in Council for a period concluding after the local government general elections to be held in October 2028. This document should also be read in conjunction with the Terms of Reference applied to the appointment of the Administrators by the Minister for Local Government.
We, the Administrators of the Moira Shire Council, pledge to work together in the best interests of the community and to discharge our responsibilities to the best of our ability and judgement. As part of this commitment, we will adhere to conduct principles, values and behaviours outlined in this Code and work together constructively to achieve Moira’s vision in a manner that is consistent with our core values. We are committed to the Standards of Conduct prescribed by the Local Government (Governance and Integrity) Regulations 2020.
