Explanatory memorandum

This memorandum is not part of the determination, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This determination is deemed to have come into force immediately after the Local Government Members (2019/20) Amendment Determination (No 3) 2020. That determination amends the Local Government Members (2019/20) Determination 2019 (the original determination) by changing the remuneration payable to certain members of the Tauranga City Council.

This determination amends the Local Government Members (Temporary Reduction—COVID-19) Determination 2020 (the principal determination), which requires reductions to be made to the remuneration of certain local government elected members for a temporary period. The amendments made by this determination apply a percentage adjustment to the updated remuneration of members of the Tauranga City Council that is the same as the percentage adjustment applied when the principal determination came into force. The temporary reduction applies until 6 January 2021 when the principal determination expires. After that date, the remuneration specified in the original determination will be payable.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 30 June 2020.
