Further information about council performance can be found in the Local Government in Victoria Report which brings together information from councils' annual reports to provide a snapshot of the current position of the sector.
The Victorian Government has introduced a mandatory system of performance reporting for councils to ensure that all councils are measuring and reporting on their performance in a consistent way. From 2015, this will enable members of the community to compare similar councils across 70 indicators and assess their performance. Find out more about the performance reporting framework.
