Our service and responsibilities
We are responsible for providing a range of community services for residents and businesses within Moonee Valley. These include areas of childcare, aged and disability, libraries, animal registration, planning, street cleaning, parking management, citizenship ceremonies, garbage collection and recycling.
We also look after community buildings, footpaths and roads, parks and gardens, bridges, drains and street furniture, environmental areas, recreation centres and sporting grounds.
The Local Government Act 1989 requires us to make particular documents available for public inspection.
The Victorian Government's Know Your Council website will provide you with even more information about the extent of local government services and how councils are performing across a range of measures compared to similar councils.
For more details on how we have performed over the past 12 months, view our Annual Report.
We are a child safe organisation
Here at Moonee Valley City Council, we are committed to being a child safe organisation with a zero tolerance for child abuse, and will protect the interests and safety of children at all times in accordance with the Victorian Child Safe Standards and related legislation.
All children, regardless of their gender, race, religious beliefs, age, disability, sexual orientation, or family or social background have equal rights to protection from abuse.
We are committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe environment for children with a disability.
We promote and are committed to the safety and empowerment of children as active citizens. We foster a culture of openness and inclusiveness, as well as supporting all staff and volunteers to understand the importance of child safety and wellbeing, and ensuring consistent adherence to child safety and policies and procedures. We demonstrate committed leadership by creating safe environments for children and young people participating in our community programs and activities.
