Register of Gifts and Contributions to Travel

The disclosure requirements around gifts and travel contributions with a value over $200 (or sum of gifts from any one person during a year) have changed and came into effect on March 4, 2016.

Councillors and designated employees are now required to disclose, in writing, to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) within 10 days. A designated employee is the CEO, an employee with delegation of authority, an employee who is a member of a committee comprising councillors and employees and any employee nominated by the local government. This replaces the previous process of disclosing these annually in a return.

Councillors and designated employees have until March 31, 2016 to disclose gifts or travel contributions received between July 1, 2015 and March 3, 2016.

The CEO is required to keep a register of these disclosures and publish the register on our Shire website. Please see below document to view the Shire of Lake Grace's current Register of Gifts and Travel Contributions.

To view our July 1, 2015 to March 3, 2016 Register of Gifts and Travel Contributions please see below document.

If you have any questions about the registers, please contact the Shire's Governance Officer on 08 9890 2500.
