Guide to Local Government

To help you understand more about local councils and their role in building stronger local communities, the Victorian Government has put together a web-based Guide to Local Government.

The guide is a great way for you to learn more about local government and to understand what council is doing in our community every day.

It has information about how the council works, how we make decisions, what services we are responsible for delivering, how we are funded, and much more.

The guide should not be regarded as representing the professional or legal advice, and professional or legal advice should be sought before acting on any serious matter.

The guide is produced and managed by Local Government Victoria.
