The Local Government Act authorises local councils to make appropriate by-laws for local people and communities. It is important for these to provide long term solutions rather than temporary relief to minor problems.
The role of the Council is to provide public services, make wise decisions in the interests of the community in a balanced way for the greatest benefit, to initiate, coordinate and serve as a catalyst for local effort, and to represent the community.
The Council is currently made up of 13 Elected Members, one of whom is the Shire President, and all are elected by the people. Elections are held every four years, the next one due October 2017.
Council also conducts annual community meetings each year.
