Description
ESTABLISHMENT:
Laidley Divisional Board I was established on 25 April 1888. The Board was constituted by six elected members, including a chairman and a clerk. Until 25 January 1890, when Forest Hill was annexed creating a third subdivision, the Division of Laidley comprised two subdivisions.

The original Laidley Divisional Board was dissolved in 1902, when the Division of Laidley was divided to form Laidley Borough Council (1172) and Laidley Divisional Board (131).

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

The Board submitted an annual Statement of Revenue and Expenditure to the Minister. By-laws created by the Board required the assent of the Governor-in-Council.
