What are the benefits of being in a local government council area?
The council develops and maintains community infrastructure such as parks, gardens, swimming pools and street furniture.
The council contributes to the regulation of the land through by-laws, such as by-laws for animal management. The by-laws are administered by authorised council staff.
Residents have the right to vote in council elections and to nominate for election to council.
Access to the council’s waste management arrangements and services.
The council contributes to the social development of the area in a variety of ways including running libraries, conducting or supporting sporting events and providing social, educational and cultural programs.
When local issues arise, the council will often be the central point for landowners or residents to raise such issues.
