Description
ESTABLISHMENT:
Laidley Shire Council II was created with the amalgamation of Laidley Town Council (132) and Laidley Shire Council I (133). Part of the Shire of Rosewood was also incorporated within Laidley Shire Council II.

FUNCTIONS:
The principle functions of Laidley Shire Council II were: public order and safety (including State Emergency Service work), community amenities (including public toilets, libraries and cemeteries), environmental protection (including collection of fines and penalties and animal control), welfare (including grants and donations to local welfare groups and organisations), health and building (including inspections and licensing, immunisations, vermin control, pest and noxious weed control), recreation and sport (including parks and reserves, sporting facilities, cultural activities), community and regional development (including shire planning), economic services (including refuse tips, roads, bridges, house numbering, road markings, rural services, area promotion, cleaning, sewerage and water).

The Shire Council was also empowered to create by-laws with respect to the above matters and was responsible for the valuation of properties and the assessment and collection of rates.

ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURE:
Laidley Shire Council II included ten annually elected members. Two Councillors were assigned to each of the five subdivisions.

The Council appointed a chairman and a clerk from amongst its ten members. The first members of the Council were former members of Laidley Town Council and Laidley Shire Council I. The Council also appointed its own officers, who were paid from the Local Fund.

All by-laws created by the Council required the assent of the Governor-in-Council.

ABOLITION:
On 15 March 2008, Laidley and Gatton Shires amalgamated to form the Lockyer Valley Region.
