Handover of Indigenous municipal services delayed in WA

Date posted: 13 July 2012

Plans to give regional shires the task of providing municipal services to Aboriginal communities in Western Australia (WA) have been officially delayed by a year.

Local shires were due to take over responsibility for providing services like rubbish collection, road maintenance, power and water in remote communities from 1 July 2012.

The WA Local Government Association (WALGA) has confirmed the handover has been delayed until the end of this financial year.

WALGA CEO Ricky Burges says it is hoped the extension will allow regional shires to resolve a number of outstanding issues and secure more Commonwealth funds to provide the services.
