Elected Members' Expenses and Allowances Policy
It is important that our Elected Members can attend to Council business when required and are equipped with the right tools to help them in their governing role.
Our Elected Members can claim some expenses and are provided an allowance for specifics such as travel, parking, childcare, ICT usage and hearings.
Each year the Remuneration Authority sets the remuneration and allowances for all elected members through the Local Government Members Determination.
Once every three years, in the year of local authority elections, Council will review the Elected Members’ Expenses and Allowances Policy.
Council will also make changes to the Policy each year based on the Local Government Members Determination that is issued by the Remuneration Authority.
