Residents are encouraged to bring matters of concern or urgent issues for the community to their Local Authority.

The Local Authorities are the "voice" of the people and make recommendations to Council. Council consider the recommendations of the Local Authorities at their general meetings. After the council meetings the Local Authorities are informed of Council decisions/actions.

Local Authorities were formed in October 2013 following the 2013 review undertaken by the Northern Territory Government to address the concerns of regional remote community members regarding the effectiveness of the governance and service arrangements established after the 2008 reform of local government.

The establishment of these authorities allows Council to be more responsive and more connected to community members. The new structure ensures flexibility in dealing with local issues and local community difference. Council strives to support the retention of cultural identity at the local community level and the new governance structure ensures that Council receives timely and relevant information on issues affecting community members.

The Local Authorities are scheduled to meet four (4) times per financial year:
