Report on George Town Council - Director of Local Government

In May 2013, the Minister for Local Government, the Hon. Bryan Green MP, received a petition signed by over 20 per cent of the electors in the George Town municipal area requesting a review of the operations of the George Town Council by the Local Government Board.

Following receipt of the petition, the Minister requested that the Director of Local Government undertake enquiries in relation to the matters raised in the petition statement and to provide recommendations to the Minister regarding the most appropriate course of action.

The George Town Council Elector Petition Report to the Minister for Local Government can be accessed here.

Consistent with the electors' petition, the Report addresses issues relating to the governance and operations of the Council, including financial and asset management, human resource management, community satisfaction and regulatory functions.
