Fix Huon Council


Points worth noting

We are not electing 'representatives.' like members of parliament.  A council is a statutory body with responsibilities set down in the Local Government Act.  If a Council represents anybody, it represents the Minister for Local Government, who has the power to sack a council if he/she sees fit.

A Council is made up of local residents however, ie people representative of the local community. Councillors often volunteer to take on issues for members of the local community.  

Councillors have broad duties of

Local Management of Community Infrastructure 
Delivery of services
Financial Management

each of these enhance the health and wellbeing of the community.
