Council Expense Policy

Policy number   POL/GOV004
Next review April 2026


The purpose of this policy is to outline the conditions under which expenses incurred by Councillors, and where required members of delegated committees while performing their civic, statutory and policy-making duties, are reimbursed or paid by Swan Hill Rural City Council (Council). The reimbursement of expenses should provide a reduction of barriers to effective participation in Local Government by members of the community by providing support to reduce personal financial costs associated with civic leadership.
