The State Government launched ‘Know Your Council’,

The State Government launched ‘Know Your Council’, a dedicated website providing insight into the performance of councils, on Friday.

The website allows, for the first time, the public to compare and contrast performance of similar councils across a range of services and other measures.

Examples of the 66 different and diverse measures are:

* Cost of indoor aquatic facilities

* Satisfaction with community consultation and engagement

* Active library members

* Kerbside collection bins missed

* Current assets compared to current liabilities

The website acts as a one-stop-shop for all things local government, with information, contact details and the latest news from across the sector.
