The annual fees paid to the Kyogle mayor and councillors will rise.
The mayor will receive $28,430 a year and councillors will get $13,030.
Kyogle Council is defined as a rural council. As a result of the tribunal’s determination, minimum and maximum fees for Kyogle Council councillors and mayor are:
Councillor minimum $9850, maximum $13,030
Mayoral fee minimum $10,490, maximum $28,430
The council has made an annual budget allocation to cover the $145,700 for the maximum fees.
Adopting the minimum fees would result in a $46,560 saving for the council.
At the Kyogle Council meeting yesterday, Tuesday, June 13, this increase was agreed by all councillors.
