Have pay say

THE Local Government Remuneration and Discipline Tribunal says it’s not too late for people to have their say on councillor remuneration.

Tribunal chairman Adrian Bloomfield said each year the independent Tribunal sets the categories and pay scales for all Queensland local governments, with the exception of Brisbane City Council.

“The tribunal is about to commence the process of reviewing the remuneration levels for local government councillors which will apply from January 2012,” Mr Bloomfield said.

“These new rates will also apply to councillors elected in March 2012.”

“I urge anyone who would like to have a say on the matter to make a written submission before Friday, September 2, 2011.”

More information on how to make a submission can be found at www.dlgp.qld.gov.au/lgrdt.

Submissions can be emailed to enquiries@remunerationtribunal.qld.gov.au.
