VLGA Seminar: Does the buck stop with Councillors

By April 27, 2006No Comments

Tonight I attended a seminar hosted by the Victorian Local Governance Association (VLGA) which provided an overview of council budgets, the federal grants commission and the rating system.

The seminar proved quite informative in understanding the Federal grants system towards local government and the growing dependence on rates for councils.
