- The value of the gift is $200 or more; or
- The value of the gift is less than $200, but the gift is one of 2 or more gifts, with a total value of $200 or more made by one person at any time.
The period of disclosure commences on 16 April 2021.
For unsuccessful candidates, the disclosure period ends 3 days after election day.
For successful candidates, the disclosure period concludes on the day the successful candidate makes a declaration in the prescribed form before acting in the office.
Disclosure is to be made by completing Form 9A and delivered to the City of Swan Chief Executive Officer in person or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
