Know Your Council

The Victorian Government has updated the new Know Your Council website.

Know Your Council is designed to be an accessible, easy to understand online resource which helps the community understand how councils work, explore information about their municipality and compare a council’s performance to 'similar councils'.

Local Government Performance Reporting Framework

The Victorian Government established the Local Government Performance Reporting Framework in 2014 to enable consistent measurement and reporting of performance across a range of common areas of service delivery. The Local Government Performance Reporting Framework includes performance data on just ten of the services provided by Council to the local community. The Framework also includes information on Council’s financial performance and their sustainable capacity.

The Know Your Council website shares sector-wide information from the Local Government Performance Reporting Framework from the full 2015/16 financial year.

Benchmarking

Through this site, Maroondah City Council's performance for 2015/16 can be reviewed in comparison with average scores for 'similar Councils' and the average for all Victorian Councils. The site also enables Maroondah's results to be compared directly against specific results for other municipalities that are included within the same 'similar Councils' group. For the purpose of this website, the 'similar Councils' group for Maroondah includes all metropolitan Councils with the exception of interface and growth area municipalities.

Our 2015/16 performance results

Maroondah City Council’s performance is measured against a wide range of different indicators. These have already been published as part of the Maroondah City Council Annual Report 2015/16.

The 2015/16 Local Government Performance Reporting Framework data indicates that Maroondah City Council performs relatively well on most Local Government Performance Reporting Framework indicators in comparison to similar Councils and all Councils.

How we use these results

The Local Government Performance Reporting Framework is one of the tools used by Council to understand its service delivery performance and drive continuous improvement. Council will continue to track performance in relation to these indicators over the 2016/17 financial year with data to be once again included in Council’s Annual Report ahead of its release on the Know Your Council website.
