Council Committees and Advisory Groups
The Shire of Chittering has the following Council Committees:
- Audit Committee
- Chittering Bushfire Advisory Committee
- Local Emergency Management Committee
An “Advisory Group” will NOT be a formal committee established under section 5.8 of the Local Government Act 1995. An “Advisory Group” is to meet as and when required and membership is to vary dependent on the issues to be addressed. The Officer responsible for the “Advisory Group” will report any outcomes from working group meetings direct to Council via an Officer’s Report.
“Advisory Groups” will not attract a sitting fee to elected members as the “Advisory Group” is not a formal committee constituted pursuant to the Local Government Act 1995.
Council members are to represent the views of Council when attending an external organisation as a member appointed by the Council, not their personal views if these conflict with Council policy and position.
Representation of external organisations will not attract a sitting fee to elected members but any out of pocket expenditure or traveling expenses will be reimbursed.
