It looks as if the Gillard government is serious about pushing ahead with a referendum alongside the federal election, to change the constitution in relation to local government. Local Government Minister Anthony Albanese released the proposed draft of the amendment last week.. There have been two previous referendum questions on local government, both defeated: one in 1974 that was broadly similar to this one, and one in 1988 that was completely different, in that it just recognised local government but didnt alter anyones financial powers.. Yesterday The Australian Financial Review reported a Nielsen poll showing 65% in favour - but not actually in favour of the governments proposal, just in favour of recognising local government in the Constitution.. That would have been an accurate description of the Hawke governments proposal, back in 1988 (which was heavily defeated). It proposed to recognise local government, but not to give the Commonwealth additional powers. The current question ...
Key points. • The ratio of local government own-source revenue to GDP is about 2 per cent.. - The ratio of rates revenue (the only tax instrument of councils) to GDP decreased from 1.0 per cent to 0.9 per cent between 1990-91 and 2005-06.. • Local governments in urban areas are predominantly funded from their own sources of revenue, particularly rates, fees and charges. For most rural and remote councils, grants are also a substantial source of their revenue.. • The revenue-raising capacity of local governments depends partly on their fiscal capacity, which differs by class of local government.. - The fiscal capacity of a council is best measured as the aggregate after-tax income of its community.. • Urban developed councils tend to draw lightly of their fiscal capacities. Remote and rural councils tend to draw more heavily on their fiscal capacities.. • Analysis of the relative potential of local governments to increase their own-source revenue indicates that councils are raising ...

Some 30,000 farm technicians and agriculture extension workers transferred to local government units from the Department of Agriculture following the implementation of the Local Government Code will soon be returned to the DAs fold.. Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol said the DA, the Department of Interior and Local Government and local government units will be signing an agreement that will reassign farm technicians and extension workers back to the DA as detailed workers.. Piñol said he and Interior and Local Government Secretary Mike Sueño have discussed the matter. Sueño is also a real farmer.. The implementation of the local government code required the transfer of the supervision of agriculture workers to local government units whose approach on agricultural issues such as diseases and pests are limited to their jurisdiction. Farm pests and diseases such as locusts, foot and mouth disease, and cocolisap among others affect huge tracks of land and stamping these out mean crossing ...
The Netherlands has three tiers of government. There are two levels of local government in the Netherlands, the provinces and the municipalities. The water boards are also part of the local government. The Netherlands is divided into twelve provinces (provincie, pl. provincies). They form the tier of administration between the central government and the municipalities. Each province is governed by a provincial council, the States-Provincial (Provinciale Staten, abbr. to PS). Its members are elected every four years. The day-to-day management of the province is in the hands of the provincial executive, the States Deputed (Gedeputeerde Staten, abbr. to GS). Members of the executive are chosen by the provincial council from among its own members and like the members of the provincial council serve for a period of four years. Members elected to the executive have to give up their membership of the provincial council. The size of the executive varies from one province to another. In Flevoland, the ...

EASTPOINTE - Armed with two new studies, Eastpointe City Manager Steve Duchane is hoping to draw attention to problems with the way local municipalities are funded in Michigan.. Duchane has long attested that funding for local governments is in need of statewide reform, and now with a couple of studies backing the theory - the CLOSUP survey results from the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy and the Local Government Finance Study, a joint study by students at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, the Citizens Research Council of Michigan and Macomb Area Communities for Regional Opportunities (MACRO) - hes hoping lawmakers in Lansing will start paying attention.. The majority of public officials, some 58 percent, think there is a need for some type of reform, Duchane said, quoting the CLOSUP survey. And about 43 percent say they do not have significant resources to meet continued demands at the current level of service.. The CLOSUP survey, which is conducted by the Center for Local, State ...

Court of Appeal struck down the City of Victorias checkout bag ban bylaw recently.

Numerous local governments have called for increases in deposit rates, and, new deposit programs for materials such as cigarette butts. Many local governments have asked the province to enact province-wide single-use plastic shopping bag ban legislation.. Potential Member Action: ...

Local government decentralization reform stands out as the most significant new focus in the Peace Corps Ukraines Community Development Project. This and other reforms aimed at strengthening civil society and encouraging civic engagement at local levels is long overdue. This legislation transfers powers from the national-level Office of the President and Cabinet of Ministers to local governments, empowering them to be more effective in delivering services to the community. It also gives local governments more budgetary powers in the delivery of their community services. As promising as the reforms may sound, they also presents its set of challenges, such as lack of experience in local government, skills, and human and financial resources. This is where the Community Development Volunteers diverse cultural and professional background will be an asset. A Volunteer may be assigned to a town council or work with several towns and villages that form an amalgamated community, which is a new ...
The two basic weaknesses of the local government structure are the number and variety of special-purpose authorities and the excessive number of territorial authorities. The special-purpose authorities in general are subject to a considerable degree of direction by the Central Government. Moreover, they exercise functions which in some instances at least might otherwise be exercised by territorial authorities, especially if the territorial structure was strengthened by amalgamation of smaller and weaker units. The excessive number of territorial authorities means that some of them are too small and consequently have inadequate resources, a fact which limits their ability to perform satisfactorily the functions demanded by a rapidly growing community and expanding economy, at least without substantial financial assistance by the Central Government. This assistance once again tends to increase the extent of direction by Central Government.. The fragmented and heterogeneous character of the local ...
One area that needs reforming in our state-and one that Senate Bill 5 directly impacts-is local governments. You certainly dont need me to tell you that budgets are tight. You have probably been living it-adjusting to someone in the family taking a pay cut or being laid off and reevaluating the way you spend your hard-earned money. The same is true for counties, cities and townships. When hard times hit the people, it inevitably trickles down to the governments representing them. Less tax revenue is coming in, so there is less money available to pay for vital public services. But instead of solving this problem by simply cutting large numbers of staff from public positions, Senate Bill 5 provides more reasonable solutions that can actually preserve these jobs ...

Last month, the Washington State Auditors Office (SAO) issued a special report about local governments that do not file their annual financial reports. The report found that 611 local governments did not file their financial report with SAO in 2013.. In response to that report, Rep. Ross Hunter (D-Medina) is sponsoring HB 2084, which imposes fines and withholds taxes to certain local governments who fail to file their annual financial reports with SAO.. Most of the proposal applies only to special purpose districts, and it specifically excludes cities, towns, and counties. However, all local governments, including cities and towns, failing to file their financial report within 150 days of the close of the fiscal year would be subject to a $500 fine.. In addition, the bill requires SAO to notify the state and county treasurers each October 1 of which special purpose districts have not filed their annual financial reports. The treasurers would be required to withhold property and sales tax ...

Another case that may impact local government liability for maintenance of potable water and sewer systems is Charlotte County v. Rotonda Project, LLC, 91 So. 3d 249 (Fla. 2d DCA 2012). The cases 20-year history and rather unique facts make it challenging to adequately characterize here. Nonetheless, it is important to consider the case as it holds potential to be either very broadly or very narrowly construed as precedent for future cases. In Rotonda, a private developer installed a water and sewer system as a condition of the state for a development permit and as part of a prohibition on use of any septic systems. The county eventually purchased this system. As large parts of the land serviced by the system were vacant for many years, the county stopped services of the system to those areas and cannibalized parts until those areas of the system were not functional. However, the county continued to tax the land as if the services were available and still represented that they were available to ...
