Shire of West Arthur

As of 4 March 2016, the Act 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 total value is over $200. The threshold for disclosures remains the same as do the other disclosures required under the Act for the annual return.

A relevant person is defined under section 5.74 of the Act as a person who is a council member or a designated employee which includes:

  • presidents
  • council members
  • the CEO
  • employees with delegated powers and duties under Part 5, Division 4 of the Act
  • employees who are members of committees comprising elected members and employees; and 
  • other employees nominated by the local government to be designated employees.

Details of the major amendments can be found at the Depatment of Local Government and Communities website.

The Shire of West Arthur's 'Register of Gifts and Contributions to Travel' is available here.
