Aldermanic Allowances and Expenses

The Local Government Act 1993  and the Local Government (General) Regulations 2015  provide for the payment of allowances and reimbursement of expenses of the office of elected members.

Specifically, the payment of the annual allowance for the office of Lord Mayor, Deputy Lord Mayor and Aldermen is provided within the Local Government (General) Regulations 2015  with the quantum determined annually by the Local Government Office, Department Premier and Cabinet.

Schedule 5 of the Local Government Act 1993  allows for the reimbursement of reasonable expenses incurred in the duties of office of elected members.

The following is a monthly summary of expenditure, excluding GST, for the 2017/2018 financial year commencing 1 July 2017.

The expenses shown on the attached reports are based upon when the Council pays a reimbursement to an Aldermen, not the month in which the expense are necessarily incurred.  As an example where a quarterly reimbursement is sought, there would be no costs shown on the report for two months, with the full combined costs then shown in the following month in which the claim was reimbursed.
