Video: just roads, rates and rubbish? Councils hit back with humour

What have local councils ever done for us?

Well, apart from maternal health services, libraries, footy fields, beaches, aged care, kindergartens… you get the picture.

Sick of 3AW shock jock Tom Elliot’s argument that councils should stick to “roads, rates and rubbish”, the Municipal Association of Victoria has produced an amusing — and very low budget — guide to the good work local government does.

Look, it may not win an Oscar, but it gets the message across.
