Terms and Conditions

Council may, subject to budget considerations and according to need, provide financial and in-kind assistance to community events outside of the Financial Assistance Grants program.

Such support will not be deemed to be sponsorship, as Council will not expect to receive a reciprocal benefit beyond a modest acknowledgment.  Such assistance must be by request from the organisers and must be considered and approved by Council.

Regulatory Fees

Council provides an annual sum of $1,000 to support the payment of Food Licensing fees for eligible organisations.

The Food License must be used to support the organisation in fundraising activities.

Council support is given by waiving the food licence fee.
