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

At its Ordinary Meeting held 28 May 2020, Sunshine Coast Council resolved not accept the increased remuneration put forward by the Local Government Remuneration Commission for the 2020/2021 financial year.

The decision was made in recognition of the impact of COVID-19 on the Sunshine Coast community.

Councillors (including mayor and deputy mayor) continue to be paid in accordance with the remuneration schedule decided by the Commission for the 2019/2020 financial year.

The schedules, the Commission's annual report and more information can be found on the
Department of  Local Government, Racing and Multicultural Affairs website.
