MEDIA AND PUBLICATIONS
The following section provides links to download the various publications and media releases which are produced by LGANT. These documents provide useful information for local governments in the Northern Territory as well as people in the wider community.
LGANT, with the cooperation of its member councils and other local government organisations, produces the Local Government Directory every year.
The Local Government Directory provides useful information about organisations providing local government services throughout the Northern Territory. Furthermore, the directory provides useful information for each council such as:
- contact details of council
- council’s logo
- Executive staff names
- elected members’ names
- service delivery areas
- general information about population, area, auditor etc.
The directory also includes information about organisations playing key roles with local government, general facts about local government in the Northern Territory and detailed coloured maps of local government boundaries.
LGANT is grateful to Colemans Printing for printing and designing the directory and also thanks advertisers for their support as well as councils for providing data.
