HURSTVILLE CITY COUNCIL

POLICY

ON
CIVIC OFFICE EXPENSES

AND FACILITIES


INTRODUCTION


In accordance with the provisions of Section 252 of the Local Government Act 1993 the Council is required to adopt a policy concerning the payment of expenses incurred by and the provision of facilities to the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and other Councillors in relation to their roles in discharging the functions of Civic Office.



LEGISLATIVE PROVISIONS

Section 252(1) and (2) of the Local Government Act 1993 provides that a Council must adopt a policy concerning the payment of expenses incurred or to be incurred by, and the provision of facilities to, the Mayor, the Deputy Mayor (if there is one) and the other Councillors and the policy may provide for fees payable to be reduced by an amount representing the private benefit to the Mayor or a Councillor of a facility provided by the Council to the Mayor or Councillor.

In addition, Sections 253 and 254 of the Local Government At 1993 also provide that before adopting a policy for the payment of expenses or provision of facilities, the Council must give at least 28 days' public notice of the proposal and that the Council or a Council Committee all the members of which are Councillors must not close to the public that part of its meeting at which a policy for the payment of expenses or provision of facilities is adopted or at which any proposal concerning those matters is discussed or considered.


OBJECTIVES

In applying the provisions of the legislation to Hurstville City Council, it is considered that Council's policy should provide for the payment of appropriate expenses and the provision of the necessary facilities to ensure that:

1. The Mayor, as the first citizen of the Council's area, as the leader of the governing body of the Council and as the principal spokesperson on Council policy is provided with a standard and range of facilities appropriate to the importance of the office.

2. The Councillors of Hurstville in their roles as members of the governing body of the Council and as elected persons are reimbursed for expenses reasonably incurred in the performance of the role and are provided with a standard and range of facilities to assist in discharging the functions of civic office.

In order to ensure that the above objectives are met, Council considers the following to be a reasonable basis for the payment of Civic Office expenses and the provision of facilities.


EXPENSES

1. Conferences and Seminars - payment or reimbursement of costs associated with:

* Expenses - the payment to Councillors of a daily subsistence allowance or
2. Sister City Relationships - in respect of Councillors nominated by Council to represent Council as part of Council’s official delegation in accordance with the policy adopted by Council in this regard.
2. Training in Word Processing/Computer Use - training course registration fees for software packages to be utilised in association with Council, to be borne by the Council.

3. Telephone Line Rental - in the event of such being considered appropriate by the Council, payment for the installation of line rental and charges for one (1) home telephone line for use in association with the provision by Council of a Fax/Answering Machine and Laptop Computer.

FACILITIES

1. Councillors

2. Mayor

REDUCTION OF FEES

1. That Council acknowledges that some minor private benefit may be derived by Members from the facilities provided by the Council; however, Council is of the opinion that such benefit is not significant and therefore considers the fees payable to the Mayor and Councillors under the Act should not be reduced.
