Mansfield Shire Annual Report 2015-16

The Victorian Local Government Act 1989 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.

The Annual Report for 2015-15 has been 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. 

The Mansfield Shire 2015-16 Annual Report was endorsed by Council at its meeting of 18 October 2016 meeting.  A copy of the Report can be viewed via the links below.

(a)  a report of its operations during the financial year;
