Section 131 and 134 of the Local Government Act 1989 requires all Councils to prepare and consider an Annual Report.
The Annual Report 2017/18 provides an overview of Council’s work and delivery over the year, with highlights of key projects and initiatives.
The report contains Council’s audited financial statement and provides a snapshot of the Council organisation, its elected Councillors, and a summary of how Council performed against operational targets.
This year, Council transformed the Annual Report into an interactive web-based format, moving away from the traditional print. This format provides the community with a new way of engaging with the report in an accessible way.
Council adopted the 2016/17 Annual Report at the Special Council Meeting held on 23 October 2018.
