8.2           Mayoral Minute - Emergency Services Levy

Minute  114/2019  

Moved:       Cr Catherine Redding

1.    That Council notes during December 2018, the NSW Government enacted laws to provide better Workers Compensation coverage for firefighters who are diagnosed with one of twelve specific work-related cancers. That in many areas of NSW, fire services are made up of elected and staff members of Local Government, and that Local Governments strongly support this expanded Workers compensation scheme. That as a result of these changes, the State Government has decided to implement the new scheme by charging Local Governments an increased Emergency Services Levy, without consultation. That the expected increase in costs to local governments will be $19m in the first year alone, and that there is little or no time to enshrine this charge in council’s 2019/2020 budgets.

2.    That Council notes that Local Government NSW (“LGNSW”) has long advocated for the emergency services levy to be significantly modified to ensure it is transparent, equitable and accountable.

3.    That Council supports Local Government NSW’s calls for:

a.    The NSW government to cover the initial additional $19m increase to Local Governments for the first year; and

b.   The NSW government to work with NSW Local Governments to redesign the funding mechanism for the scheme to ensure fairness into the future.

4.    Requests that the general manager liaise with Local Government NSW to provide Information on:

a.    The impact on council budgets; and

b.   Council advocacy actions undertaken.

5.    That Council write to the NSW Premier and NSW interim opposition leader, NSW Minister for Customer services, NSW Minister for Emergency Services, Minister for Local Government and shadow Minister for Local Government, and local state member/s (copy to Local Government NSW) to:

a.    Call upon the NSW Government to fund the 12 months of this extra cost rather than requiring councils to find the funds at short notice when budgets have already been allocated

b.   Explain how this sudden increase will impact council services / the local community.

c.    Highlight that councils were not warned of the increased cost until May 2019, despite the new laws being passed in November 2018.

d.   Explain that the poor planning and implementation of the increase is inconsistent with the government’s commitment to work in partnership with the sector.

e.    Ask the government to work with local governments to redesign the implementation of the scheme to ensure it is fairer for councils and communities into the future.
