Know Your Council

The State Government’s “Know Your Council” website compares the performance of Victorian Council’s against a series of up to 66 indicators.

This initiative was established in 2014 to improve the transparency and accountability of Council performance to ratepayers and to provide a more meaningful set of information to the public in a consistent way.

The primary objective of the Know Your Council website is to provide comprehensive performance information that meets the needs of a number of audiences. In meeting this objective:

• Council’s will have information to support strategic decision-making and continuous improvement
• Communities will have information about council performance and productivity
• Regulators will have information to monitor compliance with relevant reporting requirements
• State and Federal Governments will be better informed to make decisions that ensure an effective, efficient and sustainable system of local government.
