Help shape the future of local government

Should charities pay rates? Should there be compulsory local government elections?

How should local governments handle complaints?

These are just some of the questions that are being raised to help develop a new Local Government Act.

The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries wants to hear your views.

You are invited to attend a drop-in session to have your say on ways that local government can be transformed.

During this session you can:

  • Learn about the areas considered for reform
  • Share your thoughts and ideas to improve the way local governments operate
  • Make suggestions about how local governments can better deliver services to their communities
  • Ask questions about how potential changes to the Act may affect you


Location: City of Bunbury Council Chambers, 4 Stephen Street, Bunbury
Date: Tuesday, November 1
Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm
