Mayoral & Councillor Allowances Review

Section 74 of the Local Government Act 1989 (the Act) provides that a Council must  review and determine the level of the Councillor and Mayoral allowances within the period of 6 months after a general election or by the next 30 June, whichever is later.

Ararat Rural City Council at its Council Meeting  held on 21 February 2017 set the Councillor and Mayoral Allowances for the entire Council term (ie until November 2020) at the maximum levels for a Category 1 Council, as determined by the Minister for Local Government and published in the Victorian Government Gazette from time to time.
