Randwick Council is required to 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 and the other Councillors in relation to discharging the functions of civic office. Expenses and facilities may only be paid and/or provided in accordance with the adopted policy.

Our Councillor Expenses & Facilities Policy has been reviewed and the proposed changes are summarised below:

  • It is proposed that the ICT expenses section of the policy be updated to provide the option of a total expenses cap which each Councillor can use flexibly to meet the ICT needs associated with his or her
  • civic duties.
  • The Local Government Act has also recently been amended to provide that a Council may make a superannuation contribution payment for Councillors, starting from the financial year commencing 1 July 2022.
