The ALGA’s request to extend the deadline for submissions to Parliament’s inquiry into local government sustainability has been granted, pushing the due date back by four weeks to 31 May. 

ALGA President, Linda Scott, said that the ALGA will provide a comprehensive, evidence-based submission on behalf of all local governments. 

“However, it’s important that the Parliamentary Committee have a full understanding of the challenges facing Australian councils – as well as how we could support our communities to thrive with more sustainable funding – so I encourage all councils to provide their own submissions,” Councilor Scott said. 

“This Federal Government has promised ‘fair increases’ to Financial Assistance Grants and I urge you to highlight what this would mean for your local area.”
