Council provides a wide range of services, which benefit the community including managing and maintaining expensive infrastructure such as local roads, libraries, sports complexes, childcare centres, parks and playgrounds. Council also provides services such as planning and development assessment, waste collection and economic development. One of the ways in which Council funds these services is through their statutory power to charge Council rates.
