The Renmark Paringa Council has certain functions and duties which it must perform and certain powers which it may exercise, pursuant to the Local Government Act 1999 (“the Act”) as well as a range of other Acts. The relevant Acts grant these obligations and powers directly to the Elected Council.
It is generally recognised that for efficient operation of Council the powers for effective decision making should be delegated to staff actively involved in day-to-day operations. This allows for the Elected Members to place greater emphasis on determining the overall directions and policies of the Council.
