MR18.2      Mayor's Relief Fund Financial Statements 30th June 2018

HPERM Ref: D18/250431

Vanessa Phelan introduced the Financial Statements. She stated that Council had not received donations and there had been no appeal to raise additional funds during the year. Interest was received on investments. A $5000 donation had been made to Bega Council for the Tathra bushfires, and there was continuing expenditure from last year for Safe Shelter Shoalhaven to complete the project. The net result is therefore negative. Cash in the fund has consequently been reduced to $75,240.40.

Mark Williams (Shoalhaven City Fire Control Officer) asked whether the fund is increased annually by a set proportion. Vanessa Phelan clarified that it is a determined investment that earns interest, with funds raised by appeals to the community.

 

Recommendation (Item to be determined under delegated authority)

That the Financial Statements to 30 June 2018 for the Mayor’s Relief Fund are received for information.

 

RESOLVED (Stephen Dunshea / Glenn Wran)

That the Financial Statements to 30 June 2018 for the Mayor’s Relief Fund are received for information.
