Validity of Local Government
Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Australian Local Government Association should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

I am making an enquiry today into the validity of “Local Government”. According to local government “officers”, the local council’s authority is purportedly taken from the Local Laws Acts, Local Government Acts and the Australia Act 1986.
As I have read the Commonwealth Constitution, I have noted that it is indeed mentioned as a Department of State (page 935 Annotated version)
To date, there have been 3 referenda with which the people voted whether to recognise local government in the Constitution
1974 and 1988 The people said NO!
1999 As part of the Republic agenda which included recognising local government in the constitution, the people AGAIN said NO!
Can you confirm or deny that there exists lawful traceability back to the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution 1901? If there is, can you please provide me with this information. If there is not, why not?
