Comment on Jacinta Price reneges on council undertaking by Todd.

In Australia, the city council or shire (in a rural region) is the lowest level of government system.
The local council gathers the councilors who elected by the resident in a small area (some streets), the head of the council is Mayor or Shire president.
The council is a cell of the nation’s body, the authority limited to a small sphere, even the adjacent council couldn’t control the other.
Certainly, a city council couldn’t impose the rule on the other council, state and federal governments, therefore, some councils and mayors self-promote as the most powerful persons in the nation.
They think the council’s decision affects totally nationwide and the country has to obey, follow a council’s decision.
