Local Government - Local Council

Welcome to our wiki page on Local Government. Local government is the government that is closest to you and I. It is there for our local community. Local Government has a council of people instead of a Parliament. These people are reponsible for local matters such as rubbish collection, libraries, traffic, streets, town planning, gardeners and pet registration.MAP_LOCALAREASINNSWCOLOURED[1].jpg
