The Town of Bassendean wants feedback on updates to its governance and leadership policies

THE Town of Bassendean is calling for community feedback on updates to its leadership and governance policies.

The Town’s policy review aims to determine whether existing policies are effective and to update legislation, names and other minor changes that have occurred in the past three years.

“The nature and intent of most policies have not been significantly amended in this iteration however Council has determined to rewrite its communication and consultation policy,” Mayor John Gangell said.

“This work has not been completed and will be put for public comment when drafted.”

The Town’s leadership and governance policies affect matters such as who is eligible to receive a donation from the Town, what is the permitted maximum donations, how Council invests funds and when it is appropriate for councillors to meet with developers.

Public consultation on the policy reform is open until Wednesday, August 23.
