Have your say on local laws

Residents and ratepayers in the Shire of Mundaring have been invited to comment on the Shire's local laws.

Chief Executive Officer, Jonathan Throssell, said local governments were required to review their local laws every eight years.

"Eleven local laws, which cover a range of subjects from dogs to parking and cemeteries to meeting procedures, are currently up for review," he said.

"As part of the review, the Shire is seeking community feedback to help identify if any of these laws require amendment or repeal."

Mr Throssell said community consultation helped the Shire gauge public opinion about the contents, and ongoing suitability, of its local laws.

"Your feedback is important and valued," he said.

"I encourage all community members to learn more about the Shire's local laws and provide feedback via our online engagement portal, Engage Mundaring, before Friday 17 September."

Following the eight week public consultation period, the Shire will consider all submissions and report outcomes of the consultation to Council.

Mr Throssell said those outcomes, together with recommendations from Shire staff, would help determine if any local laws required changes.

"Should any changes be needed, the Shire will begin a separate local law process that will involve further community consultation," he said.

Shire of Mundaring's local laws were last reviewed during the 2013/14 financial year.
