Local Authorities

Local Authorities give people living in Maningrida, Minjilang, Warruwi and Gunbalanya a direct say in how council services are provided, and how funds are spent in their communities.

Local Authorities, which came into effect on 1 July 2014, are comprised of community representatives and an elected Chairperson, who advise on specific Council community and social projects that impact on their community or region.
