Councillor Expense and Support Policy

This policy supports Councillors and members of delegated committees to perform their role, as defined under the Local Government Act 2020 (Vic), by ensuring that expenses reasonably incurred in the performance of their role are reimbursed. The policy also provides guidance on:

  • Entitlements and support 
  • Processes for reimbursement 
  • Reporting, monitoring, evaluation and review requirements 
  • Other measures supporting Councillors to fulfil their duties.
