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
