LGAM Knowledge Base

The Local Government & Municipal (LGAM) Knowledge Base is a Wiki-based Encyclopedia of Local Government. It was created for the use of and to promote collaboration between Local Councils, Water Authorities and associated organisations, and to help them to save money by sharing ideas & information. It is primarily aimed at an Australian audience, but users from other countries are more than welcome to join. Everyone, including local government employees, elected members, ratepayers, students and other interested parties are encouraged to use, reuse & add to any useful information they find on the site.

Hi all, it is me the Site Administrator, Wayne.

It has been almost 14 years since I set up the Local Government and Municipal Knowledge Base (October 2008), and the hosting service Wikidot served me very well over most of that time, but recent times I've been having a fair bit of trouble with spammers, and the hosting service itself was down for a few days recently as a result of a major hack. Also for a few reasons (both work and health related) I haven't been able to put as much time into the site over the last couple of years as I would have liked and some of the content is now a bit dated. On top of all that the site has never been particularly mobile friendly, so I have decided it is time to move the useful content to a new more mobile friendly home. It will take me a while to move everything across, but I reckon I should have most of it moved by the end of 2022. I don't intend to shut the wiki down, but I'm not going to be maintaining it either, and I have closed it to new members to keep the spammers at bay, so it is inevitably going to get even more outdated over time.

The new site isn't going to be exclusively Local Government & Asset Management related, I am also going to be putting a bit of effort into my other areas of interest including; Science & Technology, Science Fiction, Music, Family History, etc., but hopefully that will make it more interesting, not less.

Anyway as I said it is going to take a while to complete the change over, but once I have copied the content of a particular page across I am going to leave a note something like this at the top of the page.

I know a lot of people refer to this site from time to time, but I usually don't get a lot of direct feedback about what's useful and what's not, but if you happen to read this, I would really love it if you contact me (moc.liamg|riafnektad#moc.liamg|riafnektad) to let me know if and how you use the site, and what you find to be of value, so I know to make that a prioity as I build the new site.

I guess that is enough for now.
