THE LAW GIVES POWERS TO THE WHOLE COUNCIL,and NOT TO INDIVIDUAL COUNCILLORS.
However Councillors must consider the implications of their law making in relation to STATE AND FEDERAL LAWS,and in certain circumstances in relation to international law.
If COUNCILLORS make laws that contravene other laws they become liable to being sued,thats why it is necessary for COUNCILLORS to get proper advice from reputable solicitors.
Important Council decisions are made when a majority of COUNCILLORS support a resolution in a COUNCIL MEETING.
An individual councillor has no authority to implement Coucil actions or to give directions to Council staff.If you would like something done,you made need to put a resolution to a Council meeting.
Local Government is one of the THREE LEVELS of GOVERNMENT in Australia,and,despite conjecture about it being Legal under the CONSTITUTION,it cannot assume power and responsibilities of the police ,public transport,and road rules.
Despite this Councils are established under State legislation and also have to enforce STATE laws.
The insidious natures and corrupt practices of COUNCILLORS and THE BEAUOCRACIES,have encouraged SERVING POLICE OFFICERS to become COUNCILLORS.
COUNCILLORS HAVE EVEN USED RATEPAYER FUNDS TO SUPPLY POLICE CARS TO VICTORIA POLICE in return for their coercive powers,to deny CITIZENS natural justice.
