Council

A local council is responsible for providing local services and facilities, and your elected councillors represent you at a local or regional level.

Eurobodalla council is responsible for environmental health, leisure and recreation facilities, libraries, local planning, local transport, parks and public places, regulation of local business, roads and footpaths, water, waste and recycling and other matters and services.

Council meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. You can attend, make a presentation during the public forum, and stream the meetings online.

We update our policies every four years, within six months of each local government election. We regularly publish financial information about our budget, provide grants for community groups, and adhere to a control and compliance framework to safeguard public funds and assets.

Community members can access Council information by making an application under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009.
