Local Government Week
NSW councils provide invaluable services to local communities, 365 days a year. 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.
Held each year at the end of July/start of August, Local Government Week sees councils across NSW host a range of great events and activities to showcase their day-to-day work to the community. Examples include:
- Family fun days
- Multicultural fairs
- Photographic competitions
- Mock council meetings for local students
- Heritage walks
- Bush care days
- Tours of council facilities like art galleries and recreation centres.
