Monday 25 Sep 2023 Local government - snapshot and key insights
Local government is responsible for providing and maintaining a wide range of services, programs and infrastructure for their communities. Local councils provide vital community services and are considered public bodies under the IBAC Act. All councils have key responsibilities for planning, building, health services, waste management, emergency management, recreation and culture. They receive funds from their communities via municipal rates, charges and fees for service and fines, as well as grant funding from state and federal governments.
