Looking to have your say on Councillors' expenses?

Interested in finding out more about Councillors' expenses and a draft plan that aims to improve accountability and transparency? Plans include a monetary limit on Councillors' expenses that could result in savings for City of Parramatta.

City of Parramatta is committed to:

  • proper conduct where Councillors are acting lawfully and honestly, exercising care and diligence in carrying out their functions
  • reasonable expenses: providing for Councillors to be reimbursed for expenses reasonably incurred as part of their role as a Councillor
  • participation, equity and access: enabling people from diverse backgrounds, underrepresented groups, those in carer roles and those with special needs to serve as a Councillor
  • appropriate use of resources: providing clear direction on the appropriate use of Council resources in accordance with legal requirements and community expectations
  • accountability and transparency: clearly stating and reporting on the expenses and facilities provided to Councillors.

Find out more about our Councillors'  Expenses and Facilities Policy here - we'd love to hear from you before Monday 22 May by 5pm with a number of ways of giving your feedback including:
