Mansfield Shire Annual Report 2016 -17

The Victorian Local Government Act 1989 (Act) requires all councils to present an Annual Report to the Minister for Local Government by 30 September each year. As well as meeting this statutory requirement, we see our Annual Report as a vital tool to keep residents, businesses, employees and potential employees, State and Federal politicians, peak bodies, community groups and organisations informed about our performance and future direction.

Our Annual Report for 2016-17, endorsed by Council at its meeting of 17 October 2017, was prepared to cater for a wide readership including the general community, ratepayers, local businesses, visitors, investors, government agencies and other interested parties. The Report also provides Council staff with an overall picture of the way we have performed and how we have contributed to the community during the year. 

A copy of the Report can be viewed via the links below. 

Under Section 131 of the Local Government Act 1989, Council's Annual Report must contain:

(a)  a report of its operations during the financial year;
(b)  an audited performance statement;
(c)  audited financial statements;
(d)  a copy of the auditor’s report on the performance statement prepared under section 132;
(e)  a copy of the auditor’s report on the financial statements under Part 3 of the Audit Act 1994;
(f)  any other matter required by the regulations.
