Personal Interest Returns Summary

The Local Government Act 2020 requires Councillors and Nominated Officers of Swan Hill Rural City Council to complete Personal Interest Returns.

A Personal Interest Return must be completed within 30 days of the commencement in their role, and then biannually in March and September of each subsequent year.

The Victorian Government imposes penalties for false and incomplete information provided in any Personal Interest Return, and for failing to lodge the Personal Interest Return within the legislated timeframes.

Council is required to provide public access to a summary of the Personal Interest Return’s which have been lodged.
