Laidley Divisional Board I (130) was dissolved when the Division of Laidley was divided in 1902 to form Laidley Borough Council (1172) and Laidley Divisional Board II.
Under the "Local Authorities Act 1902", divisional boards were reconstituted as town councils. Laidley Divisional Board II thus became Laidley Town Council (132).
The primary function of Laidley Divisional Board II 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.
Laidley Divisional Board II was constituted of three subdivisions and six elected board members.
From time to time, the Board could appoint committees for special or general purposes. Council also appointed its own officers, who were paid from the Local Fund.
Each year the Minister appointed an independent auditor to review the financial statements of the Council. The Council submitted an annual Statement of Revenue and Expenditure to the Minister, which was published in the Government Gazette.
