In December each year, the Remuneration and Discipline Tribunal must prepare a remuneration schedule which states the maximum remuneration payable to mayors, deputy mayors and councillors in each council category. Sunshine Coast Council is a Category 7 council.

Councils may determine by resolution an amount other than, but not more than the maximum proposed by the Tribunal.

From 1 July 2016, Sunshine Coast councillors (including mayor and deputy mayor) will be paid the maximum remuneration recommended by the Tribunal in its December 2015 report.

The schedule, the Tribunal's annual report and more information can be found on the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning website.
