The Local Government Act 1993 (Act), and other relevant legislation, authorises Council to undertake a range of functions by way of delegations and authorisations to staff (or another person or body such as a section 355 committee).
Current delegations and authorisations assigned by the elected Council are:
Section 377 of the Act allows the elected Council to delegate, by Council resolution, authority to the General Manager to make most of the decisions and perform most of the functions required for Council to operate on a day to day basis. In turn, Council's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) sub-delegates functions to Council staff.
