De-identified submission 2

Submission to the 2023 Local Government Annual Adjustment Determination.

I believe that the level of remuneration should be equal to the median wage at a minimum. For all councillors including Deputy Mayor. With the mayor receiving the same as now and be pegged against movements of the median wage going forward. The level of remuneration currently is not respectful.

It is critical we do not minimise the potential candidates as the role of councillor is a very serious role and should be remunerated to attract the best possible people. I speak to many who say it is not enough to cover the challenges you need to manage when you're a councillor.
