The City of Ballarat reimburses Councillors for expenses incurred while performing their duties. In addition to the payment of an allowance, the Local Government Act requires that the Mayor and Councillors be reimbursed for expenses, including travel, conference and training. Council is required to report on the information and communication technology expenses incurred by Council for Councillors' telephones and technology needs. These include monthly service charges and any additional charges.

The City of Ballarat is committed to being open and transparent. While it is not a legal requirement to publish councillor expenses online, the City of Ballarat has been publishing councillor expenses online quarterly, as well as annually in the Annual Report, exceeding requirements set under the Local Government (Planning and Reporting) Regulations 2014.

For more information, please refer to the Councillor Expenses Entitlement Policy.
