Council Policies

The Local Government Act 1995 empowers Council in the determination of policy under section 2.7 Role of Council - “(2)(b) determine the local government’s policies.”

Council policies set governing principles and guide the direction of the organisation to align with community values and aspirations. These policies have a strategic, external focus and align with the mission, vision and strategic direction of the City.

Council Policies are developed to further the achievement of the City’s strategic goals or contribute to outcomes relating to mandatory obligations. They are defined courses of action related to particular circumstances which guide staff in what is permissible when dealing with related matters.

Each of the adopted policies is contained in the City of Greater Geraldton Policy Manual
