Description
ESTABLISHMENT:
Laidley Borough Council was established when part of Subdivision 1 of the Division of Laidley was amalgamated with part of Subdivision 3 of the Division of Tarampa. The Order in Council which proclaimed this amalgamation also established a municipal Council which consisted of six elected members (aldermen), including a chairman and a clerk.

Laidley Borough Council was dissolved under the Local Authorities Act 1902.

FUNCTIONS
The primary function of the Laidley Borough Council was to provide such public services and amenities as: parks and reserves, cemeteries, libraries and recreational facilities, water and sanitation services, roads, bridges, wharves, street lighting, public health services (such as immunisations), licences and registrations for businesses, markets and animals, town planning, and the control of noxious weeds and other pests.

The Council was also responsible for administering the Local Fund and for valuing properties within the Division for the purpose of determining and collecting rates. The Council could pass by-laws regarding all matters within its jurisdiction. All such by-laws required the assent of the Governor-in-Council.

The Borough Council submitted an annual Statement of Expenditure and Revenue to the Minister.
