The Local Government Act 1999 requires the Chief Executive Officer of Council is required to keep a record of the following payments made to Elected Members:
- The annual allowance payable to the Elected Member;
- reimbursements of prescribed expenses approved by Council paid to each Elected Member under section 77(1)(b) of the Local Government Act;
- details of any other benefits paid or payable to, or provided for the benefit of each Elected Member.
Mandatory travel and care reimbursements paid to Elected Members under section 77(1)(a) of the Local Government Act are not required to be recorded in the Register, however, to provide full disclosure, these amounts are included in the totals for each Elected Member.
Please refer to the Elected Members’ Allowances and Benefits Policy for further information.
