Can the Commonwealth impose Local Government Rates on a Territory?

We asked the Attorney Generals Office to provide the Head of Power found within the Constitution allowing for Local Government to charging council rates and if no power exists the information allowing the Commonwealth to impose council rates on a Territory. The Attorney General failed to provide the power or the information requested and it can only be taken no power exists in the Constitution for this tax to be imposed by the Commonwealth.
