Under section 5.42 of the Local Government Act 1995, Council can delegate to the Chief Executive Officer certain functions and duties to perform. Delegations provide for good governance and are put in place to reduce the need for Council decisions for large volumes of routine work undertaken by the Shire. This ensures that the community is provided with efficient and effective service delivery. The Chief Executive Officer may sub-delegate functions and duties to perform to other employees providing the legislation allows for this. The Shire is required to keep records on the exercise of its delegations and a register of all delegations. The delegation register is required to be reviewed annually by Council. Please refer to the Shire’s Delegation Register below which provides a list of current powers and duties delegated.
