Welcome To The Shire Of Cunderdin

Thank you for visiting the Shire of Cunderdin website.

 We hope it provides you with any information you may be seeking as well as giving you an insight into the fantastic country lifestyle we enjoy.

Although a relatively small Shire in terms of population, what we lack in numbers we certainly make up for with endeavour. Community spirit is one of the main strengths in our two towns - Cunderdin and Meckering. Both are vibrant, successful country communities with a ‘can do’ attitude and a long list of dedicated people.

We are fortunate to have a range of sporting facilities and community organisations and there’s something for just about everyone. It’s a friendly, safe, welcoming community that offers a great alternative to the hectic nature of city living.

With exciting and innovative plans for the future I believe the Shire of Cunderdin will progress positively over the next few years, moving forward as a thriving example of what country communities can achieve.

Shire President.

Changes have been made to the Local Government Act 1995 regarding how and when gifts and travel are to be declared by elected council members and designated employees.

 

The City of Perth Bill 2015 has amended the Local Government Act 1995 (the Act) to provide that a relevant person who accepts a gift which is worth greater than $200 must disclose acceptance of the gift within ten days of receipt to the Chief Executive Officer, rather than in an annual return.  All contributions to travel over $200 must also be disclosed.  

 

The disclosures required are not intended to prevent councillors or designated employees from accepting gifts or contributions to travel that occur as part of their everyday life and activities. Given the significant responsibilities of working in local government – including overseeing budgets, deciding on major developments, and making decisions that affect the daily lives of ratepayers – it is important to have a high level of transparency and accountability to the public.  

 

The CEO is required to keep a record of the disclosures by way of a register. This is to be published on the local government’s official website as well as made available for public inspection at the council offices.
