A new online platform to help the community get the most from Local Government services and facilities has been created by the WA Local Government Association.  

Featuring video content from various Local Governments across WA, YourEveryday.com.au intends to help the community connect with places of interest, lifestyle activities and introduce key Council representatives.

Jointly launched today by Local Government Minister David Templeman and WALGA President Cr Lynne Craigie, the website also includes key information and contacts details for all WA Councils.

Minister Templeman welcomed the initiative and applauded WALGA for its work and commitment to promoting the Local Government sector.

“The quality and fantastic breadth of content is outstanding and will help promote tourism, lifestyle factors and the benefits of being on Council,” he said.

Cr Craigie said YourEveryday.com.au was developed to help build community awareness and understanding of the great diversity able to be accessed within the State.

“Local Government is the one sector of government that is already an everyday part of people’s lives but we wanted to ensure that the community realised there was so much more than just roads and rubbish,” Cr Craigie said.

“The content on the site showcases local tourist attractions, provides advice on lifestyle activities and introduces the community to key Council representatives.

“Every corner of WA has experiences just waiting to be accessed and this site aims to ensure that as many people as possible are aware what is available.”

Along with promoting tourist attractions, the site also includes drawing on Council expertise to assist the community with everyday areas of interest such as lawn maintenance, fish filleting and even how to set up a book club.

Cr Craigie said the site also profiled key Council representatives including Mayors and Presidents and senior Council staff.

“Local Governments operate for the benefit of the community and we are hoping the profiles will help build relationships between the Council and the community.”

The YourEveryday.com.au website is intended to be regularly updated with new videos from around the State and will be supported by digital and social media campaigns.

The website is YourEveryday.com.au.
