Remuneration for the mayor, deputy mayor and councillors is determined by the Local Government Remuneration and Discipline Tribunal.

In November 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.

Councillors (including mayor and deputy mayor) are paid in accordance with the remuneration schedule decided by the Commission for the 2022/2023 financial year.

The schedules, the Commission's annual report and more information can be found on the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning website.

Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.
We commit to working in partnership with the Traditional Custodians and the broader First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community to support self-determination through economic and community development.
