Councillor Code of Conduct
Adopted by Council 20 October 2009
The Local Government Act 1989 states that councils are required to review their Code of Conduct within 6 months after each general election of Councillors. The code of conduct will apply to each Councillor and each member of a special committee of the Council.
The Councillors Code of Conduct (see link below) has been prepared to satisfy the statutory requirements of the Act using a model document developed by the Victorian Local Government Association (VLGA).
The Councillor Code of Conduct, adopted by Council at its meeting of 20 October 2009, complements existing accountability requirements for local government.
