Council Resolution

Nationally councils have been declaring their support for the constitutional recognition of local government.

The Resolutions are similar to:

“Council declares its support for financial recognition of local government in the Australian Constitution so that the  Federal Government  has the power to fund local government directly and also for inclusion of local government in any new Preamble to the Constitution if one  is proposed, and calls on all political parties to support a referendum by 2013 to change the Constitution to achieve this recognition.”
