  • appoint an auditor if the application is granted
  • receive the auditor’s report
  • consider the auditor’s report and decide if legal proceedings should be commenced,
  • determine whether to recover the costs of conducting the compliance audit from the applicant if the auditor’s report indicates there were no apparent contraventions and if there were no reasonable grounds for the application
  • consider reports from the Municipal Clerk that identifies contributors who appear to have contravened any of the contribution limits for the election and decide whether legal proceedings should be commenced


Applicants shall have:
