In making its decisions about the remuneration to be paid to mayors, deputy mayors and councillors, the tribunal must have regard to:

  • provisions of the Local Government Act 2009 relating to the entitlements and responsibilities of councillors
  • community expectations about what is an appropriate level of remuneration in the circumstances.

After its determination, the tribunal must prepare a written report on:

  • the establishment of categories of local government
  • the category to which each local government has been assigned
  • the remuneration levels determined for mayors, deputy mayors and councillors in each council category
  • any approvals made under s248 of the Local Government Regulation 2012 to vary a councillor's remuneration because of exceptional circumstances.
