To the Freedom of Information Officer
City of Melbourne
MELBOURNE VIC 3000
Pursuant to the Victorian Freedom of Information Act I wish to request the following information.
1. A detailed monthly summary report of all in-house catering expenses provided to staff and Councillors covering the period from December 1, 2004 to the current date.
This report where possible should provide a breakdown of expenses occurred by department for each calendar month and include the cost associated with the provision of alcohol and refreshments.
If available a breakdown of costs for each individual councillor
I note that in-house catering expenses are not included or listed in the published Councillor expense statements.
As the information requested is of public interest, I request that the Council waiver the application fee required.
Should you require further information I can be contacted via return email
Anthony van der Craats
