Good governance is about the processes for making and implementing decisions. It is not about making "correct" decisions, but about the best possible process for making those decisions.
Good decision-making processes have a positive effect on various aspects of local government including consultation policies and practices, meeting procedures, service quality processes, elected member and employee conduct, role clarification and good working relationships.
Good governance leads to good management, good performance, good stewardship of public money, good public engagement and ultimately good outcomes for residents and service users. Good governance enables Shire of Mundaring to pursue its vision effectively as well as underpinning that vision with mechanisms for control and the management of risk.
The Governance Framework examines the principles and practices of good governance at the Shire of Mundaring.
