About us

Who are we and what do we do?
From aged care to youth services and everything in between, we're here for you!
Did you know we provide more than 200 services to help make life easier for our community? We also employ more than 800 people, many of which live right here in Moonee Valley.

You may not even realise some of our service you use in your everyday lives.

Take Jenny, for example, who uses 11 of our services in a typical day:

  • Kindergartens
  • Providing and maintaining footpaths
  • Providing and maintaining local roads
  • Libraries
  • Providing and maintaining parks
  • Planting shade trees
  • Animal registrations
  • Providing and maintaining dog parks
  • Providing and maintaining local sporting facilities
  • Leisure centres
  • Bin collections

There are three levels of government - local government (us!), state government and federal government. Each level is responsible for different things. Check out the Know Your Council website to learn more about the differences.
