Media Response Car Use for the Mayor

Questions and Responses

Can I please get clarification on what the actual system in place is regarding this - is it one specific car or a pool car? Can the car be used for private use?

The use of a Council-maintained vehicle, including for private use, is provided to the Mayor under the Policy For the Provision of Equipment to Councillors and Reimbursement of Expenses. Councillors are also provided the ad hoc use of a pool car for Council-related purposes.

Can you tell me what sort of car the mayor uses?

The current mayoral car is a VW Tiguan 162TSI. The car was purchased in January 2017 for $47,000 (excluding GST).

This vehicle was used by the previous Mayor Cr Rebecca Paterson before Cr Klisaris.
