Local Government Reports
Local Government collects Billions of Dollars in revenue per annum. Ratepayers and consumers expect an efficient and fair system. Several reports into local government from the Victorian Auditor General show that the system isn't working.
In addition the results of the Local Government Satisfaction Survey demonstrate clearly that ratepayers are not happy at all with the system. Local Councils appear often distracted and out of step with Community expectations. Whether it is the abuse of Credit Card expenses, wasting ratepayers' money or lack of transparency in decision making, Local Councils have to improve. The consumers (ratepayers) are loudly telling all levels of government that the system must change. We will hold Local Government accountable to put ratepayers, residents and traders FIRST.
