    Abstract

    The Productivity Commission reports that local governments in Australia perform an important role through their provision of infrastructure, service delivery, and planning and regulatory activities. Amidst calls by local governments for increased funding from the Australian and State governments, most councils appear to have some capacity to raise more revenue themselves, contingent on the preferences and expectations of their communities. The report responds to a request by the Australian Government to examine the capacity of local government to raise own source revenue.
