Council Committees of Management (Section 86)

Loddon Shire Council committees are made up of dedicated community members and created to manage certain functions on behalf of Council.

Some committees manage facilities, while others exist to promote tourism and economic development within the Shire.

The committees are known as Section 86 Committees, which are formal entities created under Section 86 of the Victorian Local Government Act 1989.

The purpose of establishing a committee is to delegate some of the Council’s functions or responsibilities. Instruments of Delegation that outline the objectives, composition and administrative management arrangements of each committee have been developed.

Council appreciates and respects the passion and dedication of all Section 86 committee members. The contribution made by volunteers enriches our community, and provides a much broader range of services and activities than Council could provide on its own.

As Section 86 Committees are considered part of Council operations it is important to understand that:

  • lawful actions of the Section 86 Committees are in effect actions of Council
  • Section 86 Committees are not incorporated and
  • Section 86 Committees are protected by insurance applicable to Council whilst undertaking their duties on behalf of Council.

For further information on Section 86 Committees please contact the Administration Officer Corporate Services on (03) 5494 1200.
