Local Governments have a general power to provide for the good government of the people in their district. This means that local governments can do things for the good government of their districts if they are not prevented from doing so by the Local Government Act 1995 or any other written law.
In exercising this general power, a local government can make local laws (legislative function) and provide services and facilities (executive function).
