How Council Works

An Internet resource is available online to help communities understand the workings of their Councils.

Titled How Councils Work: A Guide to the Rules, the website aims to encourage participation in Local Government through informed dealings with Councils.

The Guide provides answers to frequently asked questions about the system of Local
Government such as:

  • What are the roles and responsibilities of Local Government Councils?
  • How are Councils accountable to their communities?
  • How does the rating system work?
  • What do I do if I want to question a Council decision or action?
