The Local Government Act of 1989 and further amended on 12 December 2005 outlines the conduct of local government within Victoria, including the administration, conduct and election of local councils. The ability to create local laws, charge rates and the specific powers and accountability measures for local councils is also included.

The Local Government Act of 1989 is useful reading for anyone interested in the functions, roles and responsibilities of local councils.
