On 30 August 2019, IPART submitted its Final Report on local government election costs to the Minister for Local Government. The report was released by the NSW Government on 18 September 2019.
The Final Report recommends a costing methodology to be applied in determining the amount the NSW Electoral Commissioner (NSWEC) charges councils for local government election services.
