The Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) has launched a campaign to promote the work local government councils do for their communities.


The campaign was launched by a television advertisement that recently aired throughout Queensland.


LGAQ President Paul Bell said the campaign would let Queenslanders know about the value local councils - and the people who work for them - bring to the state.

"Like the ad says, local councils are the fabric that keeps communities together,'' Cr Bell said.


The campaign comes as Australia moves closer to a referendum on recognising local government in the Constitution.
