Submission to COVID-19 response

ALGA provided a submission to the Federal Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which was lodged in December 2023.

The detailed submission highlighted that as the closest level of government to the community, local government was in a unique position to identify community needs and make sure that those needs were met in the most appropriate way during the COVID-19 response in Australia.

Our submission also outlined local governments’ digital transformation, which delivered efficiencies and deepened community engagement. It was also the impetus for many councils to rethink business as usual and adopt innovative solutions to provide services to communities.
