Griffith City Council decided to increase their own credit card spending limit by $10,000 at a meeting on Tuesday.
"When someone reads this they'll probably have an orgasm," said mayor John Dal Broi, pre-empting the response from the community.
Councillor Dal Broi had previously hit back at rumours that he'd been going on ratepayer-funded shopping sprees courtesy of the council credit card.
At the time he totally dismissed the accusations, saying council's credit card spending was all above board and regularly scrutinised by an independent auditor and finance staff.
Council has also started publishing quarterly reports that lay out each individual councillor's expenses.
At present there are a total of 18 council credit cards owned by officers, with limits placed on each one.
After council's decision on Tuesday, overall credit card facility limits will be increased from $90,000 to $100,000.
That raises the total facilities limit to $1,260,000.
The motion was moved by Councillor Mike Neville and seconded by Councillor Anne Napoli.
