Local government plays an important role in community governance. As a forum for local decision-making, it helps deliver the Queensland Government's priorities locally and regionally.
The following documents explain how councils fit into government in Australia, what councils do, who works for councils, and how their work is funded.
Councils are accountable to you and the community. Find out about accountable and transparent local government and how to resolve issues about council decisions.
Who sets rates, how they are decided, and types of rates and charges existing in Queensland.
Facilitating tribunal determinations of remuneration to be paid to Queensland mayors, deputy mayors and councillors according to established categories.
The Queensland local government comparative information report contains comprehensive data collected annually from Queensland councils on a wide range of issues, both financial and operational. It provides councils with an opportunity to compare and contrast aspects of their financial management and service delivery with those of their peers.
The local government profile report provides a snapshot of how councils across the state performed their roles throughout the year. It uses a number of comparative indicators to illustrate how each council performed on selected activities and measures relative to other similar councils.
