Under recent legislation, the Northern Territory Government has established Local Authorities. Local Authorities are designed to give communities more say in the long term plans and budget for their community, provide a reference point for community members to bring up matters that are important to the community, deal with urgent issues and act as a conduit to the Regional Council.
Local Authorities will consist of elected Regional Councillors from the relevant council ward and nominated community members.
The Tiwi Islands Regional Council is calling for nominations for the following Local Authority positions
