In accordance with Council Policy No. 141 – Public Transparency, the following documents are, or soon will be available on our website:

Reporting from Community Asset Committees to Council

Three Community Asset Committees were established by Council on 19 August 2020 (Community Halls, Leitchville War Memorial Swimming Pool and Quambatook Caravan Park).

Following receipt of a report from each Committee, the Local Government Act 2020 requires the CEO to submit an annual report to Council in relation to the activities and performance of each Community Asset Committee. The first such report is expected early in 2021. Each report will be available for viewing in the relevant Council Agenda.

Audit and Risk Committee Performance Reporting

 The Local Government Act 2020 requires an Audit and Risk Committee to undertake an annual assessment against its Charter and a biannual audit and risk report and provide a copy of those assessments and reports to the CEO for tabling at the next Council meeting. Annual assessments and biannual audits and risk reports will be available for viewing in the relevant Council Agenda.
