Councils use local laws to respond to issues and community needs within a municipal district.
These local laws complement their responsibilities and powers under both state and federal laws. Where appropriate, Councils may introduce local laws to exercise these powers. Local laws are often adopted to protect public health, safety and amenity in a municipal district.
