The Register of Delegations presents the majority of the functions Council has authorised particular officers or Committees of Council to implement. Council can delegate any of its functions to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) or another person or body (excluding another Council employee) under the Local Government Act (Section 377). The CEO can also sub-delegate to staff, any of the functions delegated by Council under the Local Government Act (Section 377).
The Register is not an exhaustive statement of all delegated authority. Some delegations of Council authority are identified in resolutions of the Council or contained in Policy documents. This Register clarifies Council delegations of authority and facilitates the management of those delegations. The Register also provides a useful means for external bodies to confirm that staff members they are dealing with have appropriate authority.
Note: To avoid doubt, any delegation monetary amount is inclusive of GST, where applicable.
