Powers or duties delegated to City Officers by the Council and/or Chief Executive Officer
The Local Government Act permits Council to delegate any of its powers or duties to the Chief Executive Officer. The Act further allows the Chief Executive Officer to sub-delegate any of these powers or duties to City Officers. There are strict guidelines surrounding the reporting process for Officers to whom powers are delegated.
Each time a delegation is used a written record is required with these records being monitored by the Governance Services section on a quarterly basis. Council is required to review each of its delegations every financial year. The review is completed by the Governance Services section in consultation with all relevant officers and a report is submitted to Council for their consideration.
