I welcome Minister Giles comment that an options paper is to be developed and that consultations will occur over it. The National Local Roads and Transport Congress was held in Hobart last week with three councils from the Northern Territory represented. The Congress is an important part of local government's advocacy and campaigning on roads and transport issues. The outcomes from the Congress will be compiled into a report for the ALGA Board to consider at its next meeting and will also help inform ALGA's in the 2013 federal election strategy and campaign. There are a number documents from the Congress, such as the National State of the Assets Report, the final media release and speakers PowerPoint presentations, that you may wish to access. These are available on the ALGA website. ALGA will continue to add to this page over the coming weeks. It was announced at the conclusion of the Congress that next year's National Local Roads and Transport Congress will be held in Alice Springs from 12 to 14 November 2013.
