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 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 City website. View the Gifts and Contributions to Travel Register(PDF, 129KB) here.
