Australian Local Government Association statement regarding motion on Australia Day date

The National General Assembly of Local Government passed a resolution today calling on the Assembly to encourage Australian councils to consider efforts they could take to lobby the Federal Government to change the date of recognition of Australia Day.

The Board of ALGA will meet in July to consider this and other Assembly resolutions and determine what action the Board will take. The ALGA Board noted the level of debate and the closeness of the result of the debate and will take these matters into consideration when determining a course of action.
