Draft Councillor Discretionary Funds Policy

Closing on 28 May 2024, 11:59 PM


The City of Ryde Draft Councillor Discretionary Funds Policy provides a framework for the allocation of funding for discretional projects for Councillor sponsored projects.

The draft Policy provides guidance to ensure that administration of discretionary funding is separate and distinct from Council’s Community Grants and Charitable Donations Policies and the discretionary funding administration is consistent with Council corporate priorities, while also complying with the Local Government Act 1993 and the Local Government Regulation 2021.

The draft Policy provides a framework that facilitates ongoing Councillor discretionary funding applications while ensuring accountability, transparency, compliance and due diligence with the allocation of funds to Councillors for discretionary projects regularly reviewed.

Council now invites you to consider the draft Policy and make any submissions.
