Register of Gifts and Contributions to Travel
The Local Government Act 1995 requires a relevant person who accepts a gift worth more than $200.00 to disclose this gift, in writing, to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) within 10 days of receipt.
All contributions to travel over $200.00 must also be disclosed, as do multiple gifts or contributions from the same donor where the total value is over $200.00.
A relevant person is defined under section 5.74 of the Act as a person who is a Council member or a designated employee. This includes:
- Council Members
- The CEO
- Employees with delegated powers and duties under Part 5, Division 4 of the Act
- Employees who are members of committees comprising elected members and employees
- Other employees as nominated by the local government to be a designated employee
The CEO is required to keep a record of the disclosures by way of a register, which is to be published on the Town’s official website as well as made available for public inspection at the Town’s administration building.
