The primary purpose of the Policy is to avoid the Council making major decisions prior to the election that would bind an incoming Council, prevent use of public resources in ways that are seen as advantageous to or promoting the current elected members who are seeking reelection and ensures that local government officers act impartially in relation to all candidates. Implementation of a Caretaker Election Period Policy would provide for better decision- making and greater transparency and accountability in Council as prescribed by section 1.3 of the Local Government Act 1995.
The Caretaker Period will run from Thursday September 9 at 4pm (end of the Councillor Nomination Period) to Saturday 16 October at 4pm (close of Polling).
