Councillor Allowances and Reimbursements

Councillor Allowances

In accordance with the Local Government Act 2020, Councillors are entitled to receive a remunerative amount for their duties entailed within the role of being a Councillor. The amount of the remuneration set down by the Victorian Independent Remuneration Tribunal.

The Victorian Independent Remuneration Tribunal has classified each Council into one of three categories. According to size, Mildura Rural City Council has been classified as a Category 2 Council.

The Victorian Independent Remuneration Tribunal reviews the remuneration allowances on an annual basis and notifies council of the adjusted amounts by 1 July each year. Councillors are then provided the option to receive a full or part of the allowance.

For further information relating to the rates of allowances, and the allowances for the current financial year, they published and are available on the Victorian Independent Remuneration Tribunal website, which can be accessed here Allowances for Mayors, Deputy Mayors and Councillors | Victorian Government (
