Caretaker Policy

Section 96A of the Local Government Act 2008 requires Council to maintain a Caretaker Policy to govern the conduct of Council and its staff during a general election.

The purpose of this policy is to ensure Council complies with the Caretaker provisions outlined in Section 96A of the Local Government Act 2008 by restricting Council from making major decisions prior to an election which would:
• Bind an incoming Council; or
• Allow the use of public resources in ways that are seen as advantageous or disadvantageous to candidates (new or existing) in an election.
