Draft Councillor Expenses and Facilities Policy
Submissions for this public exhibition item are now closed.
The provision of resources and facilities to assist Councillors to accomplish their duties is achieved through the adoption of a Councillor Expenses and Facilities Policy. Council is required to review and adopt this policy within 12 months of each term of office.
The policy supports Councillors in executing their civic duties, as well as including provisions to allow Councillors to take opportunities for training and development so that they continue to be well equipped to make decisions in the best interests of the Maitland community. The policy ensures accountability and transparency, ensuring alignment with community expectations. The document establishes the allowances that are claimable and supporting processes.
The policy has been updated, and on 26 July 2022 Council resolves to place the draft policy on public exhibition for 28 days. Submissions will be accepted until 5.00pm Thursday 25 August 2022.
You can review the 2018 policy here.
