LOCAL Government Minister David Crisafulli will visit Redland City Council on June 4 to meet new mayor Karen Williams and her team of 10 councillors.
Mr Crisafulli said the visit was part of his plan to mend "fractured" relationships with the state's 73 local councils over the next three months.
He has already met councils in Brisbane, Hinchinbrook, Moreton Bay, Townsville and the Gold Coast.
Redland Mayor Karen Williams said she would discuss her views on the Local Government Act, the poor delivery of the local election and the impact of legislation imposed on local government.
"I look forward to forging strong relationships with the state government to ensure we all can be more effective in representing our communities," Cr Williams said.
During his visit to Redland, Mr Crisafulli said he would listen to councillors to determine what the issues were in Redland and find ways the state could help.
The visit follows his promise this month to reinstate many local government powers stripped away under the former Bligh Government to make "life easier for councils".
"The government will cut the red tape that has strangled decision making in the past by identifying planning powers that can be transferred to councils.
"The push to restore council power will deliver more efficient services to communities and lower the cost of living."
He said the waste levy, imposed by the Bligh government in 34 local government areas last year, would be abolished from July 1.
