SA opens local government reform consultation

The South Australian Government has called for local communities to contribute to ongoing reform of the local government sector after it recently launched its YourSAy website.

The State Government has invited community consultation on key reforms for local government including:

  • Stronger council member capacity and better conduct;

  • Lower costs and enhanced financial accountability;

  • Efficient and transparent local government representation; and,

  • Simpler regulation.

“South Australians are being invited to share their ideas about ways in which they think councils can work better,” State Minister for Local Government Stephan Knoll said.

“These ideas will contribute towards discussions papers that will be released in the middle of the year.

“Earlier this year we also held a round table with the local government sector and are currently awaiting their feedback about the changes that would like to see within their own sector.

The public will be able to submit their ideas for local government reform until Friday 26 April 2019.
