Register of Gifts and Contributions to Travel

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 CEO is required to keep a record of the disclosures by way of a register. This is to be published on the local government’s official website as well as made available for public inspection at the council offices.
