Local government is the concern of every man, woman and
child in the community, but unfortunately very few of us con
cern ourselves with local government. The indifference of
the local ratepayers is shown by their lack of interest on
polling day, but this of course is not unique to Tasmania.
"Local government is democratic.
The local councils are elected by the people. The people therefore have it in their
hands to guard their own interests in the working of the local
services". Not many of us, however, take any interest until
there is a sudden rise in our rates or until we have some complaint to make about the services not rendered by our particular council.
