LG Tas

LG Tas tells the stories of the many contributions Tasmanian councils are making to support their local communities, with particular focus on councils and communities working together. LG Tas showcases the diverse, innovative and high quality infrastructure and services being delivered by the Tasmanian Local Government sector.

Published twice a year, LG Tas reaches all Local Government elected members in Tasmania and is distributed extensively throughout the Local Government sector, reaching managers and specialist officers. LG Tas is also provided to the Tasmanian State Government, Tasmanian community and non-profit groups, interstate Local Government associations and suppliers to Local Government.
