Matters of governance and legislation play an important role in how local government functions, and the LGA supports councils by ensuring they are fully equipped to meet these requirements. Local government operates within a legal framework established by the SA Parliament, and the LGA provides a range of tools to assist councils to meet their legislative obligations. This includes many of the codes and guidelines relating to the roles and responsibilities of councils under the Local Government Act 1999 which are hosted on this website. The LGA also provides tools to assist councils to practice good governance, which encompasses the way in which the council is elected, the accountability of staff and elected members, and the way in which the council reports to its community.
