Travel, Training/Conferences & Child Care Register

Travel - Councillors are entitled to be reimbursed for travel expenses incurred in performing their functions. The rates of reimbursement are set by the State Government's Salaries and Allowances Tribunal and Councillors are required to submit a travel claim form which is then verified by staff before payment.

Training/Development/Conferences - Council has adopted a policy in relation to training and development for Councillors. Training and development undertaken by Councillors and paid for by the City is detailed in the register.  At the end of each financial year the City is required to publish a report on training undertaken by Councillors.  A copy of the report can be found here.

Child care - Under the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996 Councillors are to be reimbursed for child care costs incurred as a result of their attendance at Council or Committee meetings. The amount of reimbursement is determined by the Salaries and Allowances Tribunal.
