It cost the Glamorgan Spring Bay Council almost $67,000 to create a statement of expectations.
In November 2019 the state's former Local Government Director recommended the council develop a statement to deal with the roles and relationships between the mayor, councillors and staff.
The committee was established in March and consisted of the mayor, deputy mayor, Cr Rob Churchill, general manager and two independent consultants.
A SOE was signed in April, with a report in September finding it was working as intended. Before the committee was disbanded in December.
The council's general manager Greg Ingham said the two consultants cost $51,926.
"Staff costs over this period are more difficult to quantify but estimated at approximately $15,000," he said.
"[In December] council considered a report on a restructured and streamlined SOE Committee going forward, to be represented by the mayor, deputy mayor, general manager and an external representative.
"After some discussion council decided to disband the SOE Committee completely, effective immediately. Therefore, there will be no ongoing costs incurred."

Concerns were raised about if the disbandment was in opposition to the Performance Improvement Direction the council was given in June. However, the council agreed the committee had served its purpose.
The council has until March 31, 2021 to become compliant with the PID by implementing financial and asset management plans. It claims the issues raised are already being addressed.
