Council Gift Register

Changes have been made to the Local Government Act 1995 regarding how and when gifts and/or contributions to travel are to be declared by elected council members and designated employees.

The City of Perth Bill 2015 has amended the Local Government Act 1995 (the Act) to provide that a relevant person who accepts a gift which is worth greater than $200 must disclose acceptance of the gift and/or contributions to travel within ten days of receipt to the Chief Executive Officer.

The Chief Executive Officer is required to keep a register of these disclosures and publish the register on our Shire website. View the Declaration of Gift and Travel Contributions here.
