COUNCILLOR ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The Mayor and Councillors form the governing body of a council. Councillors are individually and collectively accountable to the local community for the performance of the council.
Each councillor has the responsibility to be an active and contributing member of the governing body and make considered and well-informed decisions as a member of that body. They are to participate in the development of the council’s integrated planning and reporting framework.
A key responsibility of all councillors is to represent the collective interests of residents, ratepayers and the local community by facilitating communication between community and the governing body.
Councillors must uphold and represent accurately the policies and decisions of the governing body and make all reasonable efforts to acquire and maintain the skills necessary to perform their role as a councillor.
The above roles and responsibilities are outlined in the Local Government Act 1993.
