Disclosure of Gifts & Contributions to Travel
As of 4 March 2016, the Local Government Act 1995 requires relevant persons who accept a gift worth more than $200 to disclose this gift, in writing, to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) within 10 days of receipt. This replaces the previous process of disclosing these in the annual return. All contributions to travel over $200 must also be disclosed as do multiple gifts or contributions from the same donor where the combined total value is over $200.
The CEO is required to make the register available for public inspection and to publish it on the local government’s official website.
