The District Council of Berri had been created in 1922, 11 years after the town was proclaimed. Its first major project was to provide reliable electricity to the entire area. It bought the Berri Electric Supply Company in 1936 to facilitate this, and later sold it to the Electricity Trust of South Australia, a state government agency.
The District Council of Barmera had been created as the "District Council of Cobdogla" on 17 June 1925 and been renamed Barmera in 1937. Barmera had been a soldier settlement community after World War I.
