The City of Vincent Council resolved on 16 June 2020 (Item 12.1) to invite public comment on proposed amendments to the Execution of Documents Policy.

The substantive changes to the policy are as follows:

  • The authority to execute documents required in the management of land as the landowner, such as development applications or easements relating to City owned or managed land, extends to the CEO, the Executive Manager Corporate Strategy and Governance and the Executive Directors (this was previously the CEO and Director Corporate Services), and
  • The authority to execute documents required to enact a decision of Council, such as a notification on a certificate of title or a contract resulting from a tender process, is extended to the responsible Manager.

The amended policy with tracked changes is available to view from the document library here.

This policy was advertised on 26 June 2020 however an error linking the proposed policy was identified during the consultation period. The policy is being re-advertised for the full 21-day period to ensure full community consultation.
