About local government

Local government represents its people, manages local issues and plans for the community's needs.  Victorian local government maintains peace, order and good governance, delivers more than 100 different services to people who live, work and visit the local area and maintains significant infrastructure including roads, bridges, drains, libraries, recreation facilities and parks and gardens, for our communities. Local government is responsible for implementing many diverse programs, policies and regulations set by the Victorian and Australian governments.
