Operational Policies (Staff)

In accordance with Section 5.41 of the Local Government Act 1995, it is a function of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to manage the day-to-day operations of the local government and to be responsible for the employment, management, supervision, direction and dismissal of the local government’s employees. This is not the role or function of Council.

Therefore, the policies relating to staff cannot be determined by Council. While those policies have been included in this manual for the purpose of transparency and accountability, it should be noted they are internal documents determined, reviewed and implemented by the CEO.
