On 21 March 2012 the Hindmarsh Shire Council resolved to give notice of its intention to amend the Local Law known as the Hindmarsh Local Law, pursuant to Section 119(2) of the Local Government Act 1989.
The Local Law formalises Council’s functions and powers under the Local Government Act 1989 or other Acts. The amendment to the Local Law removes the Sunset Clause date of 15 October 2012. No other changes to the Local Law are proposed.
A copy of the proposed Hindmarsh Local Law is available for inspection at www.hindmarsh.vic.gov.au and on display at the Customer Service Centres at Dimboola, Jeparit, Nhill and Rainbow.
In accordance with Section 223 of the Local Government Act 1989, any person may make a submission to Council relating to the proposed Local Law. Submissions must be received by Monday 10 September 2012. Council will consider submissions at its meeting of 17 September 2012. Any person indicating that they would like to speak in support of their submission will be heard by Council at the September meeting. Written submissions are to be directed to the Chief Executive Officer, Hindmarsh Shire Council, P.O. Box 250 Nhill Vic 3418.
