LOCAL government minister David Crisafulli will meet with Gladstone Regional Council this morning as part of a regional Queensland tour.
A spokesperson for the minister said Mr Crisafulli aimed to meet with all 72 Queensland councils to meet the councilors personally and receive local feedback.
"He wants to get to know each council, find out more about their current financial situation and what their challenges may be," he said.
"At the moment we've visited around 20 regional councils but the aim is to meet all 72, so we've still a way to go."
The spokesperson said Mr Crisafulli is interested in returning some power back to councils.
