Council >> Local Government Week

Local Government Week

Local Government Week promotes the importance of Local Government to the community.

NSW Councils hold a variety of special events during this week, inviting the public to find out how they can benefit from the variety of council programs, services and activities.

Day-in and day-out NSW councils and their staff provide invaluable services to local communities. While many people are aware that councils manage rates, roads and rubbish, the breadth and diversity of their work often goes unrecognised.

Local Government Week provides the perfect opportunity to promote the importance of councils to residents, ratepayers, businesses – the whole community.

Local Government Week this year will be held from 29 July to 4 August 2019

The theme for 2019 is Your Council.
