In December each year the Local Government Remuneration and Discipline Tribunal must prepare a remuneration schedule which states the maximum remuneration payable to mayors, deputy mayors and councillors in each council category.

Councils may determine by resolution an amount other than, but not more than the maximum proposed by the Tribunal.

From 1 July 2017, Sunshine Coast councillors (including mayor and deputy mayor) will be paid the maximum remuneration recommended by the Tribunal in its December 2016 report.

The schedule, the Tribunal's annual report and more information can be found on the
Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning website.
