Annual report

The Annual Report 2012-13 outlines Council’s actions and achievements over the last 12 months and provides important information relating to its finances and governance.

One of the key functions of the Annual Report is to openly and honestly discuss Council’s progress towards the objectives it established in its Council Plan.

Council’s ultimate goal is to create a report that engages and informs residents, community groups, businesses, members of parliament, peak bodies and other interested parties. In doing this, Council has endeavoured to produce a more accessible, transparent and accountable document by:

  • including more detail on performance vs. targets.
  • referencing multi-year trends wherever possible.
  • making greater use of visual aids such as graphs, charts and maps.
  • providing more information on Councillors and senior staff.
  • ensuring that the text is accessible and concise.

Prior to writing this year’s Annual Report, Council closely considered guidance from the Municipal Association of Victoria and the Australasian Reporting Awards. Council also called for public submissions to help improve the publication.
