Validity of Local Government

Lyn made this Government Information (Public Access) request to Australian Local Government Association

Waiting for an internal review by Australian Local Government Association of their handling of this request.

Dear Australian Local Government Association,

I too am enquiring about 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?

Yours faithfully,

Lyn

Dear Australian Local Government Association,

On July 25th I submitted a Government Information (Public Access) request to the Australian Local Government Association.

My request was about "Validity of Local Government" https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/v....

The response to my request has been delayed.

By law, the authority should normally have responded by now. Can you please address this request or explain why I haven't received an answer?

Yours faithfully,
