A record of the disclosure of gifts accepted by a 'relevant person'.
As of 4 March 2016, The Local Government Act 1995 requires a 'relevant person' who accepts a gift worth more than $200, to disclose this gift, in writing, to the Chief Executive Officer within 10 days of receipt. 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.
A 'relevant person' is defined under section 5.74 of the Local Government Act as a person who is a Council member or a designated employee which includes:
- Council Members
- The Chief Executive Officer
- Employee to whom any power or duty has been delegated under Part 5, Division 4 of the Act
- Employee who is a member of a committee comprising council members and employees
- Other employees as nominated by the local government to be a designated employee
The Chief Executive Officer is required to keep a record of the disclosures by way of a register, which is to be published on the Shire's website, as well as made available for public inspection at the Shire's Administration Building.
