Riverina and Murray Joint Organisation

The NSW Government established joint organisations under the Local Government Act 1993 (the Act) in 2018.

Joint organisations are new local government entities with legal powers to support councils to work together for better rural and regional outcomes.

Joint organisations are an important initiative to build stronger councils and improve service delivery and infrastructure across rural and regional communities. Joint organisations will enhance the way local and state governments work together to plan and deliver important regional infrastructure and investment.

Federation Council along with Albury, Berrigan, Edward River, Griffith, Hay, Leeton, Murray River, Murrumbidgee are member Councils of the Riverina and Murray Joint Organisation (RAMJO).

The inaugural meeting of RAMJO was held on Friday 29 June 2018. 

A range of documents that support the establishment of RAMJO are available for download from the bottom of this page.
