In South Australian Local Government terms, Roxby Council is unique. Created and operating under the Indenture, Council operates with all the powers, functions and duties of a South Australian Local Government Authority, with a number of notable exceptions:
- The requirement of elected Councillors has been suspended with an appointed "Administrator" performing all of the functions of Council
- Separate power and water authorities have been created, with Council operating them as separate self-contained business units
- The State Government and BHP Billiton are required to approve the Council budget and fund an annual operating Municipal deficit
External contractors carry out all of our construction, horticulture and waste management work.
