Register of Gifts and Travel to 18 October 2019

As of 4 March 2016, the Local Government Act 1995 requires relevant people who accept a gift worth more than $200 to disclose this gift, in writing, to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) within 10 days of receipt.  All contributions to travel over $200 must also be disclosed as do multiple gifts or contributions from the same donor where the total value is over $200.

A relevant person is defined under section 5.74 of the Act as a person who is a council member or a designated employee which includes:

  • Mayors;
  • Presidents;
  • 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; and
  • Other employees nominated by the local government to be designated employees.

Prior to the amendments to the Local Government Act 1995 proclaimed on the 18 October 2019, local governments were required to maintain a register of gifts and travel contributions received by the Mayor, Elected Members, Chief Executive Officer and relevant employees. This register is now redundant but is required to remain publicly available.
