Creation of the Edward River Council brings with it exciting opportunities from which everyone can benefit. The challenge now is for those directly involved with the Council, including staff and those appointed to advisory committees, plus every resident in the new Council area, to work together and ensure we make the most of the opportunity we have been given.
Never in history have we received State Government funding support at the level that is accompanied by this amalgamation, and never have we been given an opportunity to mould two strong, cohesive teams into one dynamic organisation. All services that were provided by previous councils will continue to be provided by Edward River Council. Rates and other payments can still be made, planning and development application services will continue, and waste collection services remain unchanged.
Postal and email addresses, telephone numbers and websites of the former councils will remain in place for now. Our customer service staff remain available to take your enquiries. You can contact us on 03 5880 1200. You can contact the Administrator, Ashley Hall or the Interim General Manager, Des Bilske on 03 5898 3040.
Edward River Council will be conducting a Tree Planting Scheme in 2016/17.
