Welcome to the Shire of MERREDIN

Gift Register

Amendments to the Local Government Act 1995 and subsidiary legislation requires local government to disclose information on Councillors and staff in regards to gifts and travel contributions.

Rather than declaring gifts and travel contributions in an annual return, Councillors and designated employees are now required to declare gifts and travel contributions within 10 days of receipt. The Chief Executive Officer is required to make this information available on the local government’s official website.

To view a copy of Shire of Merredin 'Gifts & Travel Register' click here. The table in the document provides information on gifts and travel contributions declared. If gifts or travel contributions have not been declared, the information will not appear on the table.

Register of Gifts and Travel to 18 October 2019

Prior to the amendments to the Local Government Act 1995 proclaimed on the 18 October 2019, local governments were required to maintain a register of gifts and travel contributions received by the Mayor, Elected Members, Chief Executive Officer and relevant employees. This register is now redundant but is required to remain publicly available.
