Philippa Major Director Corporate & Community Services MacDonnell Shire Phone 89516419 Email philippa.major@macdonnell.nt.gov.au MacDonnell Shire contacts Local Boards will be a community voice Rodinga In the next few weeks Local Government staff will be making visits to remote communities to talk with as many people as possible about setting up Local Boards. A Local Board can make sure each community has input into a Community Plan and has a voice and a direct way to provide advice to the Shire Council and its elected members. Local Boards may meet around three or four times a year (or more if they like) to have the opportunity to advise Shire Councils on community issues, and partner with their Shire Council to develop a Community Plan. By becoming a member of a Local Board, people may be able to gain personal development through learning new skills in all areas of Local Government, which may lead to becoming an elected member of the Shire Council or becoming an employee of the Shire. People will also be able to learn more about the specific roles and functions of their Shire Council, and gain experience in representing the members of their community.
