What’s this about?

The consultation paper examines how executive remuneration is set in other jurisdictions and at other levels of government. It considers a range of options from maintaining the status quo through to introducing greater regulation of the remuneration councils may pay to their general managers and senior staff.

The Minister for Local Government has announced a review of general manager and senior staff remuneration.

A consultation paper has been issued to seek the views of the local government sector and other stakeholders and the broader community.

Currently, councils are free to determine the remuneration they pay to their general managers and senior staff based on a range of considerations including the skills and experience applicants bring to the role, the size and operational complexity of the council, market conditions and industry benchmarks. Councils are required to publicly report on the remuneration they pay to their general managers and senior staff in their annual reports.

It considers a range of options from maintaining the status quo through to introducing greater regulation of the remuneration councils may pay to their general managers and senior staff.
