Local Authority meetings continue in West Arnhem

28 June 2018

The West Arnhem Regional Council operates Local Authorities in Minjilang, Warruwi, Maningrida and Gunbalanya to learn about what these communities need and want by listening and working with community residents.  
The authorities are intended to  give people a strong voice in local government by allowing people to be actively  involved in planning, giving feedback on service delivery, identifying priority community projects  and  finding solutions to local issues. 
The Council helps plan and deliver local projects that have been identified as priorities by each Local Authority.
There have recently been Local Authority meetings at Warruwi and Gunbalanya, and at these meetings the Local Authorities were provided with a response by the Council to the issues they raised  in past meetings as well as detailed financial and operational reports. 
Decisions were also made about the investment of the Local Authority project funding pool which is intended to support priority community projects that encourage the continued development of Local Authorities and their respective communities.  
Meetings of Local Authorities are open to the public and details of meeting dates and minutes of past meetings can be found on the Council’s website at;
