Have your say on these updated policies and documents

Strathbogie Shire Council is urging locals to review and provide feedback on a series of updated policies and documents.

The new and revised policies and documents have been developed in response to the approval of the new Local Government Act 2020.

Executive Manager Governance and Customer Service Dawn Bray urged the community to download a copy of the new policies and provide its thoughts by visiting the Have Your Say section of Council’s website.

The following draft policies are now open for feedback:

  • Draft Public Transparency Policy 2020. This seeks to implement the Act’s public transparency principles and ensure Council’s decision making is transparent and as much of the information we hold as possible is accessible to the community.
  • Updated Council Expenses Policy 2020. Minor changes have been made to the existing policy, which ensures expenditure on and by Councillors is clearly linked to them undertaking their public duties. It also ensures public transparency around the reimbursement of expenses through quarterly reporting.
  • Public Interest Disclosures Policy 2020. This new policy reflects changes to the State ‘whistleblower’ legislation and aims to encourage people to raise concerns about the conduct of our staff and Councillors in a confidential way that protects the privacy and welfare of all concerned in the issue.
  • Audit and Risk Committee Charter 2020. The current Audit Committee must be disbanded and a new Committee created under a new Charter. This Charter clearly identifies the extended role of the Committee as a corporate ‘watchdog’ and the composition of its members.

 

Copies of all these documents are available by either clicking on the ‘Have Your Say’ button on the home page of Council’s website or phoning our Customer Service team on 1800 065 993 to request either a hard or email copy to be sent to you.

Feedback closes at 5pm on Tuesday, July 14 2020. Feedback must be provide in writing by:

  • Emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • By letter to PO Box 177, Euroa, 3666

For more information phone 1800 065 993 and ask to speak to Dawn Bray.
