Commentary on Sections

Section 16:  Statutory transition committees:  functions

This section provides that the functions of a statutory transition committee are essentially to prepare for, and give full effect to, the reorganisation of local government.  It also enables the Department to make regulations to confer powers on or impose duties on statutory transition committees, including the making of rates and the appointment of staff for the new councils.
