Our service and responsibilities

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.
